Mittagong Historic Walk




P. 02 4871 2888

The name Mittagong is an Aboriginal word said to mean ‘High Mountain’, and in 1816 Surveyor Meehan applied it to the range that the South (Argyle) Road had to cross – and it is still known as Mittagong Range.

When a new line of road to the south was being built through to Berrima in the 1830’s, a rich deposit of iron ore was struck in the vicinity near where the Mittagong RSL Club stands today.
