Home to Kuring-gai (Guringai) people until at least 1828, the island called Mullet Island by Arthur Phillip was leased to Andrew Thompson, salt maker, in the 1790s. In the 1860s it was bought by the Dangar family, becoming Dangar Island officially in 1922, by which time it had been sold and subdivided. It is now a residential community and holiday island.
