Beauty Point Hornsby

Located at the entrance of Coba Bay on Berowra Creek in Hornsby Shire, Beauty Point is also known as Coba Point. [1] Long the land of the Dharug people, the western bank of Berowra Creek was gradually settled by Europeans during the nineteenth century. [2] The original land grant of 40 acres (16 hectares) on Beauty Point was given to Joseph Rae, but by 1905 it was held by John Kelly. [3] That land has now been subdivided along the waterfront.
