This is where I live, and to be honest I couldn't imagine living any where else.
The local land were inhibited by the Wurundjeri People.
Wurundjeri people take their name from the word wurun meaning Manna Gum (Eucalyptus viminalis) which is common along Birrarung and djeri, a grub found in the tree.
Bullengarook comes under the Macedon Ranges Shire. The Europeans settled here way back in the 1850's.
The industry that was going on around this time was slate and gold mining.
These days there are approximately 681 people living in the area many with farms and many who just enjoy the amazing views.
We have no shops in our little town, but we do have a Fire station, Specialist School, and a reserve that is used for Pony Club, Cricket and even as a place to practice fly fishing and much much more.
The Shops are located either side of Bullengarook. Gisborne or Bacchus Marsh which takes a 15 minute drive in either direction.
Here is a couple of pictures of the Old Slate Mines
We often go here for picnics.
