Aboriginal Names

— George Caley, the botanical collector for Sir Joseph Banks, stated — 9th February, 1807 — that "Mandowe," or "Mundowey," was the name given by the blacks of the Sydney district. It is interesting to note that, half a century later, Sir William. Macarthur gave the name "Maandowit," as the aboriginal name of the Camden blacks, for the local Grey Gum.
