Origin of the name
Geography and climate
In September 1859 a coach service was started between Lucky Woman's and Smythesdale:
A NEW CONVEYANCE.-A parcel and passenger conveyance has just been started between here and the Lucky Woman's, which will no doubt be great convenience to the public and also a good speculation to the proprietor. I am surprised that such a one has not been long started from here to Italian Gully, which is a good opening to one in the above line.
