This locality on the Cox Peninsula is named after "Mandorah", a guest house built in the area by Allan Hartwig. The name was first officially recorded as an address on correspondence between Mrs Florence Hartwig and the Lands Department in May 1948. Mr Allan Hartwig held Occupation Licence No. 242 of about 20 acres. Although the name appears first in 1948, the name could have been applied during or just after World War II.
