The name Mutdapilly is believed to be a combination word from the Yuggera language (Yugarabul dialect) where mudtherri means sticky or muddy and pilly means gully.[1][2] The name was give by Captain Patrick Logan on 9 June 1827.[4]

Local resident, Mr Denman, donated 2 acres of land for a school. The Normanby State School and teacher's residence was opened on 27 April 1874; the first head teacher was John Stanfell Clowes who served at the school until 31 July 1876. The school was renamed Mutdapilly State School on 1 April 1968.[5][6][7]

St Aidan's Church of England was built in Mutdapilly in 1921, designed by Charles Chauvel (the Australian filmmaker). The church closed in 1974 and the building is now used as a residence.[7][8]
