History/Origin This locality technically derives its name from the ridge of fertile upland country jutting out as a "middle point" into the open plain country on the edge of the coastal plains of the Adelaide River. The CSIRO Research Station and the Middle Point School were established there in the wake of the Humpty Doo Rice Project and associated rice experiments. The original Marrakai Station was established on the River nearby.
