thank you scallyart….love the name of your town…. Dumbleyung….sounds a creative place…do you know the meaning?
Hello Robyn – Dumbleyung’s name is of Aboriginal origin, coming from “Dambeling” which possibly means “large lake or inland sea” (although another source suggests it came from “dumbung”, a game played with bent sticks and a hard piece of fruit). The lake nearby was discovered and named Dambeling Lake by explorers Henry Landor and Henry Maxwell Lefroy in 1843The above was lifted from Wikepedia, but I have seen the same two meanings written in books. I grew up on a farm that was on the edge of the Lake. A great playground. The lake is a salt lake and in a lot of years it is empty, but some beautiful salt effects can be seen, so I love it then also.Regards Kerry
sounds wonderful, thanks, i love the history & had never heard of this place…so you are a true local!
Don’t worry Robyn – most people from the rest of WA have never heard of it either. Our main claim to fame is that in 1964 Donald Campbell broke the Water speed record on the lake in his boat the “Bluebird”. He did it on New Year’s eve which gave him both the water and land speed record in the same year.
