Dural is located about 35 km north-west of the Sydney CBD in the Baulkham Hills Shire. With the many nurseries, fruit orchards, hobby farms, art and craft galleries, Dural has a distinct rural feel and provides for a scenic drive that passes a number of roadside stalls selling fresh flowers and produce.

The original inhabitants of the area were the Darug people, who were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. The Darug were made up of a number of different ‘clans’, however their demise occurred with European settlement, which sadly resulted in very little information about them remaining. The name ‘Dural’ was derived from a Darug word ‘Dooral Dooral’, which means ‘a smoking tree’, a word that is believed to have been used in response to the early settlers action of burning stumps after logging.
