Dictionary of Sydney: Which Suburbs are named after women?
Sydney has a large variety of suburbs names, but very, very few of them have been named after prominent women in our history.
Dr Lisa Murray from the Dictionary of Sydney went hunting through the archives to see which of our suburban Sydney names had a direction connection to women… and which were a little more tentative.
From Airds to Darling Point — even through to Wollstonecraft, Dr Murray has the story behind their names. If you want more stories of Sydney, visit Dictionary of Sydney.
