The name Lapstone Hill was first given to the slope of the eastern escarpment in 1832 because of the number of water worn stones that resembled the stones cobblers held between their knees to beat the leather against. In 1964 the railway station was built by Lapstone Estate LTD and therefore became known as Lapstone. The railway platform was originally known as Lucasville Platform and was built in 1878 to serve Mr John Lucas, Minister for Mines.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
