Suburb Overview

Cooranbong is a town and rural suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia, and is located west of the town of Morisset off the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway.

The town's name is derived from the Aboriginal word "Kour-an-bong", meaning "rocky bottom creek" or "water over rocks".

The original inhabitants of the Cooranbong area are the Awabakal peoples. The Awabakal peoples lands included the Newcastle region and Lake Macquarie. As European settlers moved north from the Sydney region from the 1790s, encroaching on Awabakal land, a number of military battles occurred in the Central Coast region. The ongoing battles in the areas north of Sydney, the invasion of Awabakal land, the discovery of coal at Newcastle and its subsequent settlement, and the impact of disease left the Awabakal peoples displaced from their lands.

The invasion and dispossession of the Awabakal lands opened the way for land in the Cooranbong area to be allocated to members of the military. The first European settler was Lieutenant Percy Simpson, who received a 2,000-acre land grant from the government and was assigned six convicts who cleared the land, grazed cattle and built a homestead near Dora Creek. Although Simpson only stayed there for two years, one of his convicts, Moses Carroll, became a stockman in the area, eventually becoming the area's police constable. The Robertson Land Act of 1861 allowed the town to grow, encouraging the construction of a Catholic church and later, police station and courthouse , a post office and an Anglican church. Timber became the backbone of the economy and during the 1880s the population reached 700.

When the railway was built from Sydney to Newcastle, the line passed around 5 km east of the town centre. The station and associated settlement were originally labelled as Cooranbong but later became known as Morisset. This was devastating to the local economy and the population dropped to 206 people by 1891. This economic depression continued until the Seventh-day Adventist Church bought 1,500 acres on the northern bank of Dora Creek where they built Avondale College and Sanitarium Health Food Company .

The Avondale Estate is a Seventh-day Adventist owned estate opposite the Cooranbong shops. The estate is home to Avondale College, a Seventh-day Adventist tertiary education institution, the Sanitarium Health Food Company, Avondale College Church, Avondale Memorial Church, a disused dairy farm and Avondale Retirement Village. A number of Avondale College students and staff also live on the estate.

At the ABS 2006 census, 4,477 people lived in the Cooranbong area. The median age of Cooranbong residents was 40 years, compared with 42 years in the surrounding region. By far the highest religious affiliation was Seventh-day Adventist at 36.1%, compared to 5.6% in the region and 0.88% in the Newcastle Statistical District. This was followed by Anglican, no religion, Catholic and Uniting. The median weekly individual income was $349, which was lower than the regional average.
