Cammeraygal country until the Europeans came, Kurraba Point is a small locality in Neutral Bay. Part of the Thrupps estate, it was not subdivided until the 1850s, though a quarry was working there in the 1840s. A soap factory, and a ferry depot and engineering works were later industries. By the early twentieth century Kurraba Point was an elite enclave of large houses with water views. Infill housing and the construction of apartments later changed the area.
