History

Historical notes: The modern day road known as The Drive was created in the 1920 Yaralla Park subdivision of the Yaralla Estate, along the original drive to Yaralla House from Concord Road. At Dame Eadith Walker's insistence The Drive was constructed to an unusually wide 25 metres. Despite Dame Eadith Walker's opposition the residents of the street replaced most of the mature brush box trees which once lined the street with 'Butia capitata' palms.
