Mulgrave is a suburb north west of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is a predominately industrial and commercial area.[2]

History[edit]

The district was settled in the period between 1794 and 1800. Lieutenant-Governor Grose named the locality ‘Mulgrave Place’ honouring Constantine Phipps, the second Baron Mulgrave, who had died in 1792. Baron Mulgrave had been an English naval officer and statesman and a colleague and friend of Joseph Banks.[3][4]

Filmed as the setting for the song 'Angeline is always Friday', steam hauled services ceased to operate shortly afterwards.
