Jerramungup

Jerramungup is a small town located on the main southern artery connecting the Great Southern district to Esperance and beyond. It is 450 kilometres south-east of Perth and is a popular refuelling and stopping place for travellers. The town was gazetted in 1957. Surveyor Septimus Roe was in the area over one hundred years earlier. The townsite was settled in 1953 as part of the government's War Service Land Settlement scheme for returned servicemen
