Bonville & Boambee
Bonville - Bundagen - Boambee is a rural, rural-residential and national park area. Bonville - Bundagen - Boambee is bounded by the locality of North Boambee Valley, Boambee Creek, Sawtell Road and the Pacific Highway in the north, Lyons Road, the locality of Sawtell, Bonville Creek and the Coral Sea in the east, and Bellingen Shire and Pine Creek in the south and west. Bonville is thought to be named from an Aboriginal word meaning "a place where one stays a long time". Bundagen is thought to be named from an Aboriginal word meaning "a good camping place". Boambee is thought to be named from an Aboriginal word meaning "to hit".
Settlement of the area dates from the 1870s. Gradual growth took place during the late 1800s, spurred by the construction of the railway line and sugar production. Population was minimal until the post-war years, with the most significant growth from the 1980s. The population continued to increase from the 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
Major features of the area include Bongil Bongil National Park, Bonville Golf Resort, Coffs Harbour Butterfly House, Boambee Memorial Hall, Bonville Memorial Hall, Bonville Creek, Pine Creek and several schools.
