History behind the name

Jalarra is the Aboriginal name for the satinwood tree, Buchanania arborescens. The fruit of these trees was an important food source during Gurrabana (the Wet Season).  There is a ring of jalarra trees planted at Jalarra Park.  The land at Jalarra Park was part of Lily Bank Farm where bananas, pineapples, sugarcane and oranges were grown. In 1926 this block was set aside as school reserve.  The school was never built and in 1993 the State Government gave the land to Mulgrave Shire Council for use as a Recreation Reserve.
