Jardee is a small town in the South West region of Western Australia. It is situated along the South Western Highway between Manjimup and Pemberton.

It was originally a railway siding named Jardanup, which had been established in 1912 during the construction of the Bridgetown to Wilgarup railway line. Jardanup was the terminus built to service the No. 1 state saw mill, also built in 1912.

In 1920 the railway line spread during the visit of Edward Prince of Wales, (the future King Edward VIII) derailing the royal train. [2] In most reports the location was identified as "ten miles from Bridgetown". [3]

The name of the town was changed to Jardee in 1925 as it was often confused with Dardanup, and the town was gazetted in 1927. [4]

The name is a portmanteau of the Aboriginal word for the area Jardanup and the name of a historic property in the area, Deeside.
