Bullaburra (769m)

Much of the land here was originally owned by Sir Henry Parkes who named the locality The Village of Colridge. In the 1920s Arthur Rickard & Co. opened a large subdivision here and gave it the name of Bullaburra, an Aboriginal (not local) word said to mean “blue sky” or “fine weather”. The railway station opened with this name in 1925.
