ⓘ Rappville, New South Wales

The district in which Rappville is situated was initially developed by European settlers for cattle grazing for example the very extensive Wooroowoolga Station and forestry from the 1840s onwards, to these rural industries was added dairying, which became an important component from the 1860s for almost the next 100 years. Initially, rural products were transported by road and the network of navigable rivers, however in 1903 the small but growing North Coast railway line reached Casino and two years later was extended south to Grafton. A sawmiller named John Murray established his sawmill by the new railway in an area initially called Murrays Siding, to exploit both the local supply of timber and the onward rail connections first to Casino and thence to the then inland port town of Lismore, sited at the highest navigable point of an arm of the Richmond later renamed Wilsons River. It appears that whole logs were also loaded for downstream milling, as may be judged by the following item appearing in the Sydney Morning Herald for 15 November 1906:

In October 2019, the village has been destroyed as devastating forest fires, which began in Busbys flat swept through a residential area that resulted in the loss of at least 15 homes, though no lives believed to have been lost. In the villages, a pub and a primary school have been retained, although the hall was destroyed. The fire also led to significant damage to the Sydney-Brisbane railway line, the loss of local power and telecommunications infrastructure and the closure of nearby roads to traffic in several places.
