Originally occupied by the Bibbulmun Australian Aborigines, Pemberton was named for being the town of “plenty of water”. Pemberton was chosen as the site for government saw mills in 1913, which supplied half a million railway sleepers for the Trans-Australian Railway and was later gazetted in 1925. By the 1980s, Pemberton was a thriving tourist town for the giant trees, which give visitors a unique opportunity to view the landscape at a staggering height of up to 65 metres. In addition to this, Pemberton is home to a wonderful selection of fishing hotspots.
