Lake Macquarie History

Mulbinga Street

Mulbinga Street was named in 1940. The Charlestown Urban Committee authorised an extension of Mulbinga Street in 1957. To date, the meaning of this word has not been found. Possibly a misspelling of Mulubinba, (Source: "Place Names of NSW" by AW Reed) an Aboriginal name for Newcastle. Another variation is 'malubinda - an indigenous fern (the site of Newcastle)' from NMH 11 Dec 1954.
