Nannup Timber Mill Project

The Nannup Timber Mill project is one of the Shire of Nannup's latest video assets. The video interviews some of the mill’s longest employees, and details how one employee started work there in 1971 and another two in 1975.

The video details to great extent the history of the mill as well as how the mill was operating until the Timber Industry’s closure in 2023. It is a fantastic, educational video that shares a huge part of Nannup’s history.

The Nannup Mill was built in 1925 after the closure of the Barrabup and Ellis Creek Mill. The mill was owned by the Kauri Timber Company until 1963, followed by Douglas Jones Pty Ltd, Millars, Bunnings, Nannup Timber Processing and then Parkside Timber in 2020. Historically, the mill had its own town built around it but then, as the timber industry changed, the mill altered its operations and Nannup grew out and began to diversify.

The Shire of Nannup would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this film such an amazing documentation of our important history.
