Nyabing

The township of Nyabing is approx. 320 kilometres south-east of Perth and almost halfway between Katanning and Pingrup. The townsite emerged from a rail siding called Nampup which was established in 1911. Straight away there were complaints that the name was too similar to Nannup . The names Narrara, Wingar and Naiabing were all proposed. Naiabing was selected but the spelling was altered to Nyabing and this name was adopted in 1912
