The spelling of a swamp nestled at the foot of Mount Allyn in the Chichester State Forest has come into question.
Roy Grogan, who named the swamp Burraga in the 1960s, noticed it had been spelled incorrectly when he picked up a brochure in East Gresford recently.
"It was spelled Burrago in the Gresford Twin Rivers Country brochure, and it’s Burraga,” he said.
Mr Grogan spent some of the 1960s working for the NSW Forestry Commission in Dungog.
“I was mapping for the whole region – from Mount Royal, near the Barrington Tops, to Berrico state forest,” he said.
“We discovered it on the aerial photographs and we also did a trip into there to have a look at it.
“Whilst I was there I had a book of Aboriginal meanings and Burraga means bitter swamp, which means nothing grows there.
“I named it along with many other creek tributaries and other prominent peaks, they were all taken from that book for the reasons associated with their prominence.”
Burraga swamp can be viewed on a walking track through rainforest and remote wilderness, which is featured on the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service website.
