The name Growlers Gully derives from a road in Merton
There are two schools of thought as to the origin of the road name either; the growls of the koala’s that inhabited the tree-lined road or other’s believe the name to have evolved from the route disgruntled miners took making their way back from poor mining claims in the Puzzle Ranges; the latter is the one that is documented.
Our use of the colours of orange and blue typify the brilliant blue clear sky, dry earth of an Australian summer; a theme we have carried through in the cellar door.
