Blue Mountains Australia Tourist Information
Opinions vary as to the meaning of the name... Twin Peaks perhaps referring to Mt. Hay and Mnt.Banks which are both visible from the town; Blue Skies or the Aboriginal translation of Clear Skies - Pleasant Weather. Whichever one you choose the name Bullaburra when used by the Aborigines was, it is said,"pronounced in a deep sonorous manner as if coming from a didgeridoo".Aboriginal relics dating back to 12000 - 5000BC have been found on Kings Tableland so Bullaburra could well be one of the oldest names in Australia still retaining its original sound.
