History & Beaches

Well known as the 'insular peninsular', it is a long running joke that once your go to live in the Northern Beaches, you never leave. The area was explored in back in 1788 by Captain Arthur Phillip and  settlement dates back to 1796, though development was slow due to difficult terrain and access being only by ship. The first land grants were recorded back to 1810 for logging and farming, with numerous small communities being established. Some growth occurred during the 1880s and 1890s, as access was improved. The area significantly changed in 1923 when the first bridge (now called The Spit) linked Mosman to Manly, it was here that coastal areas became a popular holiday destination, with many guesthouses, weekenders and holiday homes built. Significant residential development occurred from the 1950s, along with industrial and commercial development during the 1960s and 1970s. The population increased gradually from the early 1990s, rising from under 207,000 in 1991 to nearly 274,000 in 2020.
