Badgebup

This very small locality is situated on the Katanning - Nyabing Road. Although the town was gazetted around 1923, it never took off. The townsite was established here as a stopping point on the Katanning - Nyabing railway. First the name Badjebupp was proposed but the town was actually gazetted under its current name. The name changed to Nalabup in 1923 then back to Badgebup again later on in that same year. The town is named after a local spring.
