The Noongar (or Bibbulmun) people first inhabited Mandurah and named it Mandjar, meaning meeting place. When Europeans settled it is thought that they mispronounced the name and Mandurah was named.
In December 1829 Thomas Peel arrived in Western Australia, having financed his voyage in exchange for land.However the term of the grant stated that he needed to arrive by 1st November to secure the land, and not arriving on time, the land was forfeited. Undeterred Thomas built a small settlement at Woodman Point, and after facing many problems led the remaining settlers south to the area known as Mandurah.
Soon after, other settlers joined and in 1937 there were registered 12 settlers in Mandurah, thought to be from three families.
Mandurah has continued to grow since this time.
