    3. According to NSW Geographical Names Register (http://www.gnb.nsw.gov.au/name_search): "Comes from Bendemeer a river which flows near the ruins of Chilminar in Persia. Mr Thomas Perry the founder of Bendemeer Station was a descendent of Captain Perry (Deputy Surveyor General. NSW to TL Mitchell) was a friend of Sir Thomas Moore the author of 'Lalla Rookh' in which appears the following lines-'There's a bower of roses" Obviously this statement was truncated so maybe GNB can advise further.
