The suburb’s history dates back to 1814 when the then-governor provided a grant of land to Thomas Miller, a military man. The presence of a small mill on location led to the area being referred to as Jack, The Miller’s Point seeing as a man called Jack, owned the mill. Over the years, a school, a church and an observatory were both constructed.

Two notable pubs, thanks to the fact that they are the oldest surviving, provide the perfect chance to drink the nights away. The two are Lord Nelson, as well as The Fortune of War – which is closer to the Rocks. Additional options include the Hero of Waterloo, as well as Palisade – both exciting places worth checking out.

Additionally, there are many historical and heritage landmarks in the suburb. The cobblestone lanes lead visitors to this quaint neighbourhood, and it feels like walking through layers upon layers of history. Look out for the brick buildings and stone churches that are a reflection of the city’s colonial era. A closer look as you walk the streets reveal placards that mention the bubonic plague outbreaks in the suburb’s heydays.

Take the stairs that lead to the suburb’s open green spaces at Pottinger Park –  a lush patch of land ideal for quiet walks. The other option involves taking on the heritage trails that are interwoven to provide accessibility to The Rocks.

Other attractions nearby include Glover Cottages, Garrison Church, Georgian Warehouse, as well as Carlson Terrace located on Kent Street.
