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.
