 Uploaded 24th April 2011

The Shire of Gnowangerup is a Local Government Area in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, about 120 kilometres north of Albany and about 370 kilometres southeast of the capital, Perth. The Shire covers an area of 4,268 square kilometres, and its seat of government is the town of Gnowangerup.


Gnowangerup was initially gazetted as a Road Board in 1912, taking in eastern sections of Broomehill and Tambellup. On 1 July 1961, it became a Shire Council following changes to the Local Government Act. The area of Gnowangerup is mainly wheat sheep on sandplain country. In the 1960's it was reported to have good rainfall but when the clearing started, the rainfall changed. Farmers who managed large properties were able to survive because of the economies of scale. At regular intervals, farmers in this area now have to cart water for their stock.  The runway was rebuilt and surfaced in 2009/10 and has pilot activated lighting.
