I just wished to point out a small inaccuracy in your information. The town of Dookie was originally surveyed in 1859 by Ludovic MARIE (an expatriate Frenchman) who had arrived in Victoria in 1853. He originally named the town Louieville and it was not until 1887 that the town was renamed Dookie. Three street within Dookie still bare the names that Ludovic gave them; Marie (his surname), Camille and Perdita (streets both named after his daughters).
