The History of Wooling Hill

Wooling Hill Memorial Garden Estate itself has many memories. It is said that the name ‘Wooling’ comes originally from the Aboriginal word ‘Woolong’ meaning “much water coming together”. This is now reflected by the lakes and water features which appear across the developing estate.

The Robertson family established the estate in 1840 – it was one of the earliest settlements in the district and as the Robertson children had families of their own, Wooling Hill came to resemble a small village. The nine-acre orchard and four-acre kitchen garden fed the family well.

The family cemetery still stands at Wooling Hill, marked in the fashion of those times, by Italian cypresses and a hand-made post and rail-fence (see the picture above third from the right bottom)
