Boyup Brook is a town in the south-west of Western Australia, 269km south-southeast of Perth and 31km northeast of Bridgetown.The name Boyup is derived from the name of a nearby pool "Booyup", an Aboriginal term meaning "place of big stones" (large granite outcrops common in the area) or "place of big smoke" (from burning the many surrounding grass trees).The town's economy is primarily agricultural. It is a Cooperative Bulk Handling receival site.HistoryAbout 1839, John Hassell brought sheep and cattle from the eastern states of Australia via Albany, and acquired a lease of land along what would later become Scotts Brook, south of the current town site. Although he grazed this stock in the area, the leases did not become permanent, and Hassell later moved to Kendenup.In 1845, Augustus Gregory followed the Blackwood River from the junction of the Arthur and Beaufort Rivers downstream for about 170km. He carved his initials and the date into a jarrah tree, approximately 16km north-east of where the town now lies. That tree is now dead, but the stump and the markings remain. The stump - now known as the Gregory Tree - has been covered for preservation.Boyup Brook is in Western Australia.
