History

The name of Undullah comes from the Aboriginal word nandulla, meaning silver-leafed iron bark. The land was originally taken up by Henry Herbert Elliot, who had extensive landholdings in the area and ran cattle. The area was known for grazing and fodder crops in the 19th century.

In 1848, early pioneer John Cameron established Undullah Run as a large rural land holding of 30,000 acres. On 19 March 1869, 26 square miles of land was resumed from Undullah Run by The Crown Lands Alienation Act of 1868. This Act resumed land from leaseholders and made it available for freehold selection. By the early 20th century, the land was owned by Mr Wilbraham and, by the 1970s, the name had been changed to Undullah station.

The modern suburb was named on 24 April 1997, when its boundaries were set. On 20 May 2016, the eastern section of Undullah was removed to allow for the creation of Monarch Glen and Flinders Lake.
