Toronto, Australia

Toronto is a busy suburb on the western shore of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia. Toronto was the site of an Aboriginal[?] mission, established in 1829. It was named after Toronto, Canada in honour of Edward Hanlan[?], a world-champion sculler who moved from Canada to Australia in about 1885.

Up until the mid 1980s it had a railway station which terminated the branch line from Fassifern. It now has a bus aptly named "The Train".
