Early settlement began in the late 1860s in the hilly area of the village. Occupations consisted of farming, cedar logging, whaling and fruit growing and eventually mining when the Bulli Mine was opened in 1859 and the Bulli Jetty which shipped the coal from the mine opened in 1863. The township was known as North Bulli until February 1880 when the name of Robbinsville was chosen. The new name was decided upon at a meeting of ten men (including Frederick Robbins) in George's Whitford's "big new House" (located on the site of today's Ryans Hotel) in 1880. One suggestion for a name for the place was "Mudmire" but somehow Robbins convinced the others to call the town after himself. It only had a total population of 490 in 1891.

Thirroul as a suburb has a major station, library, two primary schools, two grocery stores (IGA and bi-Lo), two lively pubs, various cafes and restaurants. Coffee shops are prevalent and a modem rsl club also.
