Kirribilli is a suburb of Sydney, in Cammeraygal Country in the state of New South Wales, Australia. One of the city’s most established and affluent neighborhoods, it is located three kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area administered by North Sydney Council. Kirribilli is a harbourside suburb, sitting on the Lower North Shore of Sydney Harbour. Kirribilli House is one of the two official residences of the Prime Minister of Australia.
The name Kirribilli is derived from an Aboriginal word Kiarabilli, which means ‘good fishing spot’. Another theory suggests that Kirribilli is an adaptation of ‘Carabella’, the name given by early colonist James Milson to his first house.
The suburb initially formed in the vicinity of Jeffrey Street and was subsequently part of a grant to James Milson (1785-1872), after whom Milsons Point was named. The area was largely covered in native bush. As the decades passed, the land was cleared bit by bit and sub-divided, first for the construction of large family residences during the 1840s, secondly for the erection of Victorian terrace houses from the 1860s onwards, and finally for 20th-Century flats.
Prominent early landowners in Kirribilli included members of the Campbell, Jeffrey and Gibbes families. Colonel John George Nathaniel Gibbes (1787-1873), the Collector of Customs for New South Wales, built ‘Watonga’ – the forerunner of Admiralty House – in 1842–43 on a 5-acre (20,000 m2) site which he leased, and then purchased, from the Campbells. Gibbes’ son, William John Gibbes, lived nearby in Beulah House during the 1840s. Beulah was later lived in by the Riley and Lasseter families. Eventually, the house was demolished and its grounds subdivided into numerous residential blocks which were put up for public auction in 1905.
Although Kirribilli is a predominantly residential area today, from 1890 to 1921, the Pastoral Finance Association had a large wool warehouse, meat cold store and wharf, on the foreshore adjacent to Admiralty House. The seven-storey building was destroyed by fire in December 1921, along with 30,000 bales of wool. Its engine room, which survived the fire, supplied electricity to customers on the north side of the harbour, until around 1925.The land was sold off in 19 allotments, in 1925, and later redeveloped as blocks of apartments. maxi van taxi sydney, maxi sydney, airport maxi taxi, book minibus taxi, maxi/taxi, maxi taxi to sydney airport, maxi/taxi airport, taxi van sydney, maxi cabs Sydney Australia, maxi taxi online, maxi/ taxi Sydney airport, maxi/taxi airport Sydney, maxi/taxi booking, book maxi cab, booking a maxi cab, maxi/ taxi sydney quote, maxi taxi to airport sydney, taxi quote sydney, best taxi service in sydney,
