Comboyne, an agricultural village, is situated on the Comboyne Plateau. With high rainfall and fertile soils, the area is perfect for agricultural activities. Comboyne got its name from an indigenous name that means “a place for kangaroos”.
Before the arrival of European settlers, Comboyne was filled with lush forests. The Birpai people were the first inhabitants of the area, and they arrived hunting for food and seeking medicinal plants. The earliest known record of the area appeared in 1934 on Thomas Mitchell’s Map of the Colony of N.S.W. Comboyne was then referred to as “Cunboyne”. Because of the arrival of cedar cutters in the 1870s, Comboyne’s dense forest was gone by 1910. In 1899, the Father of Comboyne, Thomas Jones, chose land on Comboyne that would be the location of the first village. However, the site was not developed.
With the decline in timber, timber mills started to close. Today, Comboyne’s main industries are cut flower farms, blueberries, kiwifruit and avocadoes. Beef cattle grazing and dairy are also major industries until today.
