Dunedoo - (Dunny-doo - with dunny being a colloquial Australian word for a toilet) jumps out from the map causing it to be a well known name to travellers.
Lesser known perhaps is that the name is locally known to come from the local Wiradjuri Aboriginal name for black swans, which were seen in the Talbragar river and nearby lagoons,
As with many names, some question this and say that it has Scottish origins.
