Neutral Bay name

Neutral Bay was named by Governor Arthur Phillip, when he decreed in 1789 that all non-British ‘neutral‘ ships visiting Port Jackson were to anchor there. This was due to the fact that transport was so slow that no one could be sure if Australia was at war with the visiting ships, so they were asked to moor out of cannon range in the “Neutral” bay.

In 1884, architect Walter Liberty Vernon (1846-1914) leased a large parcel of land in Neutral Bay, for his home (“Penshurst”), and started the Neutral Bay Land Company to develop houses. Vernon was an Alderman and Mayor of the Borough of East St Leonards, and was the New South Wales Government Architect from 1890 to 1911.
