The Whittlesea Primary school, an old stone building opened in 1878, is still the home base for the local primary school. The name Whittlesea was thought to be from its English origins of Whittlesey.
More recently, and tragically, Whittlesea was where firefighters set up base to coordinate relief and national support following the Black Saturday disaster in 2009.
