Named after the Kimberley District. Following discovery of the district by Alexander Forrest in 1879 it was decided to open the new district for settlement. The Governor, Sir William Robinson, sent copies of suggested land regulations to the Earl of Kimberley, the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and in his dispatch said that it was proposed that the new country should be called the Kimberley District. This name was approved by the Earl of Kimberley in a telegram dated 26 August 1880.
