Darlington Name Origin
Darlington is named after a former nursery in the area, which was named in honour of Governor Darling.
Darlington Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1827, when the first land grant was made. In the mid 1830s a nursery operated in the area. The University of Sydney was built in the 1850s, changing about half of the built landscape. Significant development did not occur until the 1870s and 1880s, with the area providing housing for people who worked in nearby factories and railway yards. In the late 1900s many of the original houses were restored or redeveloped. The population has gradually increased since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
Major features of the area include The University of Sydney (Camperdown/Darlington Campus), Sydney TAFE (Eora College), Charles Kernan Reserve and Darlington Public School.
