Gnowangerup, named as the place of the Mallee Fowl in the Aboriginal Noongar language, Gnowangerup is a town located 61 kilometres (38 mi) south-east of Katanning in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The townsite was first gazetted in 1908 under the spelling of Ngowangerupp. Local dissatisfaction with this spelling led to it being altered to Gnowangerup in 1913.
The local Agricultural Hall was opened in August 1910 in dreadful weather by Arnold Piesse.
