Australian Place Names: More Than 2000 Meanings and Origins by Brian Kennedy
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This authoritative and entertaining book is an essential addition to every reference shelf. From Abbotsford to Zillmere, Great Australian Place Names covers not just urban and suburban names but Australia's colourful and exotic rural place names including Arkaba (SA), the Daguilar Range (Q), Fassifern (NSW), Isabella Plains (ACT), Koroit (V), Norseman (WA), Rum Jungle (NT), and Warrane (T). Many place names are derived from Aboriginal words or from people and places in the United Kingdom well-known at the time of colonisation but others have more obscure and fascinating origins. At least one place is named after its discoverer's horse!
