Macquarie University

Macquarie University

The name to be chosen for Sydney’s third metropolitan university came down to two different schools of thought – those who wanted to commemorate a great Australian figure in education, and those who preferred a geographical name. In 1964, the NSW State Cabinet chose in favour of naming the university after a prominent Australian. In the end, Governor Lachlan Macquarie was chosen ahead of suggestions which included WC Wentworth and Sir Henry Parkes. You can learn more about Lachlan Macquarie’s influence on Australia and his life and background on this site, but why not visit Macquarie University’s Lachlan and Elizabeth Macquarie Archive which provides transcripts, artefacts, images and historical details in a digital gateway into the lives and times of the Macquaries in the period 1761-1835.
