Plenty Road – Whittlesea

Last modified date

   The name ‘Plenty River’ was bestowed in Feb. 1836 by Joseph Tice GELLIBRAND, of the Port Phillip Association, because the nearby country had such a promising aspect.

   When the area around what is now Whittlesea was settled in the 1840’s, it received the name “Plenty” or “Upper Plenty” because of its proximity to the Plenty River.
