Nabawa is a small town on the Chapman Valley Road situated a few kms north of Nanson, within the Shire of Chapman Valley, and has been an established townsite since the 1890's. The Shire moved its HQ from Nanson to Nabawa in 1964. The town of Nabawa was declared in 1965. Nabawa is derived from Nabawar Pool, a point on the Chapman River, the name being of Aboriginal origin. The railway came though here in 1910 but was closed in 1961
