Bucketty is a locality in the City of Hawkesbury local government area (LGA), in New South Wales, Australia.[1][2] It is in the north of the LGA, immediately adjacent to the border with the City of Cessnock, just outside the Hunter Region, about 105 km (65 mi) north of Sydney, and 122 km (76 mi) from Windsor, the council seat.[5] Bucketty is the Aboriginal word for mountain spring.[6] Bucketty is situated on ridge of ironstone hills separating Yengo National Park from the Central Coast. Bucketty has no services and the nearest general store is located in Laguna or Kulnura. The New South Wales Rural Fire Service maintains the Bucketty & District Rural Fire Brigade and the Fire Shed is the social centre of the town.[7] Until 2005 all the streets in Bucketty were referred to as "Private Road" and a number indicating the sequence that they leave George Downes Drive. When rural addressing was introduced, the streets were given names.
