The name Toongabbie was given by the Dharuk Aboriginal language group and translated to mean either’meeting of the waters’ or ‘land near water. It may have been named after John King, an Australian-born Pastoralist and Parliamentarian, who managed the ‘Rosedale’ run during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in NSW.
