Originally named German Hill, so called from the small colony of Germans and German-born there, was renamed Lidster in commemoration of Trooper Cecil Lidster, a member of a pioneer family, who was killed on April 25 at the landing at Anzac.

The area of small holdings, had an active Catholic community, it was notable for being the location of the second foundation of the sisters of St. Joseph of Perthville in 1874. A church was built here in the late 1800s and continued in use until the 1960s when the decline in the rural population led to its closure and demolition.
