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.
