There are various stories about how the lamington was created. However, we like to think that it was devised by Armand Galland, the French chef to Lord Lamington, Governor of Queensland (1896-1901). Galland had a Tahitian wife - hence his use of coconut - and is said to have first served the delicious cakes at the governor's country residence in Toowoomba. What Lord Lamington lovingly referred to as "those bloody, puffy, woolly biscuits", we now know as the lamington!
