Origin of a Name?

One story is that Crows Nest is named after an aboriginal man called Jimmy Crow, who lived in a hollow tree near the present police station. Timber hauling bullock teams would stop in this area overnight and Jimmy Crow used to give them directions. There is a 6 ft statue of Jimmy Crow in Centenary Park, Crows Nest to honour this legend. For another version of the origin of the name see the story of Bullockys Rest.
