The Booragul section of Highway 217 is called Toronto Road. This was an early road that went through Quigley's Estate to Fennell Bay; it was often impassable after heavy rain. Toronto Road was tar-sealed in 1933. The first nursing home in Lake Macquarie, C.A. Brown Anglican Village and the Booragul roundabout, the first in Lake Macquarie, are on Toronto Road.
