History
The area that now constitutes the suburbs of Austral was a parcel of land in West Hoxton purchased by the Austral Banking and Land Proprietary. When residents pushed for a second public school in the Hoxton Park area in 1891, Austral Banking and Land Proprietary donated 3 acres (12,000 m2) of its land for the site and, in return, the school was named Austral Public School. The name of the school became synonymous with the area although it wasn’t officially recognised until 1972. Austral Post Office opened on 7 February 1894. (wikipedia)
