You are in: Palm BeachTo Places
Originally part of a large land grant given to James Napper in 1816, this area on the tip of the Pittwater Peninsula was initially very sparsely populated, with only a few fishermen choosing to live in the area. Following the purchase of this land by the New South Wales government in 1900 Palm Beach was subdivided into smaller residential lots which were primarily bought by Sydney's elite looking to build a second residence along the coast in 1912. Palm Beach takes its name from the many Cabbage Tree Palms which line the shore.
