About this blog: random thoughts, discoveries, ramblings. Much of this was originally composed as email to a local history mailing list, rather than being written specifically for publishing, so it's a little disjointed. I figured it was better to get it out to everyone else in rough form rather than not at all.

If you have a common interest in anything, or can add further to the information I've provided here, please contact me.

  [Craigieburn / Mickleham / Greenvale] Aitken Hill

24 July 2007, 9:55am      

A bit of trivia today, according to the Registrar of Geographic
Names, the recognised names for Aitken Hill are:

Aitken Hill (official)
Aitkens Hill (historical)
Mount Aitken (historical)
Yuroke (historical)

I've also seen it referred to as Mount Yuroke (perhaps they missed a word)
