The site for the brickworks was chosen due to its proximity to a source of good clay, transport, the city and a permanent spring to supply water for mixing. The spring still flows today and is the main reason why the new wetlands are so well supplied with water.

North Goulburn was also an area of working class housing and a ready supply of labour.
