The island’s history can be traced back to 1789 when Lieutenant Ralph Clark lived on the island following the arrival of the First Fleet a few months earlier. Lt. Clark took to cultivating vegetables on the island, transforming it into a beautiful green space.

Even though his vegetables were stolen, the Lieutenant’s name remains on the island today. Presently, the island is a stunning recreational location for locals and foreigners who appreciate tranquillity and would love to soak in the island’s captivating beauty.
