STREET D - G
Most likely named after William Darke, Colonial Surveyor of the Bacchus Marsh district in 1839-1840.
(Peterson & Catrice, p.16)
George Dickie arrived in Bacchus Marsh around 1860 and became a dairy farmer. A son, George, and a grandson, Vance Patrick Dickie, both became members of the Victorian Parliament. The family was closely associated with the dairying industry and milk factories in Bacchus Marsh for many years. Depending when the street was named it may have been named after one, or several members of the family.
