Kendall is a town on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. Kendall was originally named Camden Heads, as it is located on the Camden Haven River.[2] In was renamed Kendall, in 1891, after the Australian poet Henry Kendall, and not, as some suspect, after the similarly-spelled ancient town of Kendal in the County of Cumbria in England. Henry Kendall lived in the area from 1875 to 1881 when he was the first Forest Inspector for New South Wales.

The original residents of the Kendall area were the Birpai people.
