Winmalee (305m)

This area was originally known as North Springwood until, in 1969, the Geographical Names Board made the decision to seek a new name. As the result of a community competition, the name Winmalee was chosen and became official in 1972. The word is said to be of Aboriginal origin (not local) and to mean “in a northerly direction”.
