Have You Heard Of Fishermans Point?

Fisherman's Bend Hawkesbury River  Tyrrell collection   HSC L S Coll

This tranquil image titled ‘Fisherman’s Bend’ Hawkesbury River is from the original Tyrrell Collection (glass plate) and by Henry King 1880-1900. It certainly evokes a relaxed river lifestyle in the Australian bush.

..Fisherman’s Point, lies on the southwestern shore of the Hawkesbury River,immediately north of Bar Island,at the mouth of Berowra Creek.

Previously called Fisherman’s Bend, it was named Fisherman’s Point on an 1831 survey map which also records a 35 acre (14hectare) land grant to two businessmen  F J King and R W Robinson.

Since then,Fisherman’s Point has become a secluded residential and recreational area…
