Punchbowl

A south-western Sydney suburb, about 15km from the CBD, Punchbowl is believed to have taken its name from Punchbowl Road which once hosted an inn called the Punch and Bowl, built in the 1830s by an early settler, George Faulkner.

An early battle with the Aborigines of the Botany Bay tribe at Punchbowl went decidedly in the Aborigines favour. The white settlers regrouped and returned to the scene of the hostilities to seek satisfaction only to find that their opponents had already gone walkabout.

Originally a forest of predominantly mahogany and grey box trees, forest gum and tea tree brush, today Punchbowl is intensively residential.

Punchbowl is a suburb of Bankstown City which is one of the most populous local government areas in New South Wales. Bankstown was one of the chief beneficiaries of the Commonwealth Government"s vigorous post-World War II immigration policy and the community includes people drawn from almost every country on Earth.
