Originally called Blackburn Cove honouring the Master of HM Armed Tender Supply. Since the area saw much activity by convicts cutting reeds as a source of roof thatching in the early days of the colony, the name became established as the 'Rushcutting Bay' from which the present name derives. The creek has two arms; that rising in present day Darlinghurst and the other, Glenmore Brook, rising in Woollahra and which passed through lower Paddington - the valley also carried the romantic name Lacro.
