Maraylya

Maraylya is located approximately 50 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills. The original inhabitants of the Maraylya area were the Darug people. The Darug were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. They were divided into a number of different ムclans', whose quick demise upon European settlement has sadly resulted in very little information remaining on how the local area was utilised. This locality, east of Windsor, was originally known as Forrester after an early landholder Robert Forrester who was granted 30 acres at ムMulgrave Place' in 1794. In the 1920s the local Progress Association changed the name to Maraylya, which is presumed to be an Aboriginal name, but the meaning is unknown. Cattai Creek runs through this rural area leading to Cattai National Park. Towns surrounding Maraylya include: Cattai, Glenorie, Nelson and Pitt Town.
