History

Killara is an Aboriginal word meaning permanent or always there. The name of the suburb was chosen when the railway line opened in 1899. James George Edwards was a representative of the people who requested a station be built here. The suburb was established as a “Gentlemen’s suburb”, designed so that there would be no commercial ventures in the area. For this reason, the suburb has very few shops in the original development. It also has a number of heritage listed sites.
