White settlers started calling Rosedale home in 1844, well he was a Chinese man with poor eyesight also lived there for a time and it was also named after him, the creek today still bears his name Blind Joe. The name of Rosedale today is after Rosalie Dutton who’s family ran the station for a few short years and had to move on because it was such difficult conditions.
In the 1800s it was a described as a perilous 9-day horseback journey from Sydney.
When they arrived it didn’t get any easier, built right beside a flood plain. That would flood without notice. Even in summer water caused the land to be swampy. It was a drought. There were tensions between the original owners and the settlers. The settlers had guns, outmatching the Gunai-Kurnai people. Bushrangers were prowling on new settlers.
Death was a constant companion out here, in all manner of ways. Some spirits are peaceful but not willing to leave after all that work they did carving out their place in Rosedale, making it a home.
Maybe some of the spirits were always there, as elemental spirits that control the rocks, trees, water, and fire? Like gnomes and fairies. Discover the story on the Rosedale Ghost Tour.
