The area of Adjungbilly was originally referred to as Nadjongbilla, from the Wiradjuri word nadjong meaning water and billa meaning creek, therefore referring to the area's creek with its permanent water supply. The area has a community hall and a small isolated primary school named the Bongongo Public School probably in relation to the nearby Bongongo Station.
