Postcode: 6284

Cowaramup is a town in the South West of Western Australia, 12 kilometres north of Margaret River in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River. The name Cowaramup derives its name from Cowaramup Siding, which was located near the townsite, on the now disused Busselton to Augusta railway.

The townsite was gazetted in 1925, and the name is believed to be derived from Aboriginal word “Cowara”, meaning Purple Crowned Lorikeet.
