MOUNT DRUITT HISTORY OF SUBURBS

DHARRUK

Originally the name of one of three tribal and language groups who lived in the vicinity of the settlement of Sydney. Their range extended from the coast, between Port Jackson & Botany Bay, west into the Blue Mountains. The Aboriginal had no written language, and it is not uncommon to find a number of different spellings of the same word therefore the Dharruk name is also spelt Dhurug.
