The creek at the northern end of Old Berowra Road, where Grimson’s Gully and Wall’s Gully meet, behind Rofe Park, derived its name in the following way. Before the railway, in the 1880s and preceding motor transport, in the 1920s fishermen and settlers along Berowra Creek rowed to the headwaters, moored the their boats and followed the bush track along Calna Creek to join the Peat’s Ferry Road to Sydney. Leaving Berowra Creek early in the morning they would breakfast near where Wilkinson’s Dairy stands, and the place became known as Breakfast Creek. The track from there on became known as the Berowra Road up to Hookham’s Corner, and is now known as Old Berowra Road.
