Our migrant heritage

The Shire of Manjimup has experienced waves of immigration since European settlement. The statistics below are based on the current population. It is worth highlighting that while residents may have been born within the Shire or elsewhere in Australia, many of them will have parents or grandparents who were born overseas.

The 2016 Census data shows that of the current Shire population:

74.6% are Australian citizens by birth
25.4% were born overseas 
13.9.% speaks a language other than English at home

The majority of the Shire’s population was born in Australia (6,888 people). The largest population born overseas is from England (506 people). The remaining population are immigrants from many diverse countries with many diverse cultures and language groups; however, Italian and Macedonian are the most common languages spoken at home after English.
