Warragul formed as a town in 1882. It also was built around the railway line. The land as the Kurnai Nations people would have known and utilised had large thick trees with their stone axes, their dwellings and communities were established on the hills (these details were published in the obituary of the first white settlers house and stores). The land was quite damp which created boggy conditions for hooved animals drawing carts that the settlers brought with them. Described by early journalists as a swamp and virgin bush wilderness. Brandy Creek was originally settled first as people pushed further south into the actual location of Warragul as the railway line was out through in 1878.
