The hill is linked to the waterhole of the same name a couple of kms to the south.
Robert Austin camped nearby in 1854 and recorded the name as "Dijoin".
John Forrest, in 1869 recorded the name as "Dajoing".
Surveyor HS King, in 1889 came to the nearby sheepyard and waterhole and called the WH "Datjoin". He put a cairn on the hill.
This pre-1912 map shows the waterhole (HK135) and the hill (HK136)


This pre-1923 map shows the hill with the name "Dajoing"

Thanks Alan.

There’s always a story behind the names of so many places and you are the man who usually knows it.

Cheers
