History

Fiddletown was named after two brothers named Henstock and another young man named Small, who took up selections in the area. Each had a violin or fiddle. Areas here were mined for sandstone and people who came to work there lived in caravans and grew orange orchids, which can still be found in Marramarra National Park.

In recent years, the Geographical Names Board of New South Wales debated its amalgamation into the adjacent suburb of Arcadia. However, this attempt was unsuccessful.

There is also a Fiddletown, California in the United States.
