Bridgetown History


The original name local aboriginal people had for the area of Bridgetown was Geejelup. Bridgetown became gazetted in 1868 and it was named in honour of the ship, Bridgetown. That year, the barque Bridgetown had carried the cargo of Bridgetowns first shipment of wool from the port at Bunbury. Many bridges have been built across the Blackwood River at Bridgetown, including one of the last large wooden bridges to be built in Western Australia. The 1981 built Bridgetown Bridge is a colossal jarrah structure stretching 127.5 metres.
