The name came about after John Costello carved his initials in a Bauhinia tree here while he was out "looking at country". Those who came after him would use that blazed tree as a marker, and eventually a pub was built on the spot to cater for the ever-increasing trade. The manager of Canterbury station got a little weary of pulling his stockmen out of the pub and bought it and ripped the roof off. The weather did the rest, and today there is little left but mounds of clay and a few rotting timbers. Nearby there's a graveyard that reminds you that this was not a really good place for women and young children.
