As a very wild guess, I'll say Denistone.

Makes odd noise when it's faulty.

Not Denistone or Cockle Creek.

Doonside?

When “Doonside” is faulty, it makes “odd noise”.

Doonside it is!

Ingleburn?  (D + ingle = dingle, which is defined as a wooded valley or dell.)

Not the answer I had, but yours works too!

So over to you!

Thank you, Sonofagunzel, but I'm not really sure I should be taking over on the basis of an answer that wasn't the one you had in mind.  Besides, I'm intrigued to work out what that is.

Let me have another guess - Burwood?

Now I feel I can take up the running.

Here's an easy one:

Macdonaldtown?

Good guess, but not Macdonaldtown.

MacArthur?

Macarthur is the correct answer.  A "mac" is a colloquialism for a type of raincoat (see below), Arthur is Ron Weasley's father in the Harry Potter books.

(Incidentally, I was told this one many years ago:

Q.  What do you call a man in a raincoat?  A. Mac.
Q.  What do you call two men in raincoats?  A. Max.
Q.  What do you call two men in raincoats standing at the gates of a cemetery?  A. Max Bygraves.)

And it's back to Sonofagunzel.

Being one who has strenuously avoided Harry Potter, I was never going to guess it!
