In the 19th century, the region was primarily bushland, but over the years, it has undergone clearance and division to give way to the construction of houses and apartments. This development was even more pronounced with the opening of the majestic Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Some of the suburb’s most prominent landmarks; including Kirribilli House, the Kirribilli Neighbourhood Centre, as well as the Admiralty House and Lodge at Kirribilli Point, all of which are heritage-listed properties. Kirribilli House, which is the official residence of the country’s Prime Minister, is open to the public once a year.
