Hunters Hill (also spelt Hunter’s Hill) is a suburb on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Hunters Hill is located 9 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district and is the administrative centre for the local government area of the Municipality of Hunter’s Hill.
Hunters Hill is situated on a small peninsula that separates the Lane Cove River and Parramatta River. It can be reached by bus or by ferry.
The area’s Aboriginal name is ‘Mookaboola’ or ‘Moocooboola’, which means meeting of waters.
Hunters Hill was named after John Hunter the second Governor of New South Wales between 1795 and 1800.
The area that is now Hunters Hill was settled in 1835. One of the earliest settlers was Mary Reiby, the first female retailer in Sydney. She built a cottage — later known as Fig Tree House — on land that fronted the Lane Cove River; Reiby Street is named after her. During the 1840s, bushrangers and convicts who had escaped from the penal settlement on Cockatoo Island took refuge in Hunters Hill.
Many of the suburb’s early houses were built from the local sandstone. A number were built by Frenchman Didier Numa Joubert (1816-1881), who bought 200 acres (0.81 km2) of land from Mary Reiby from 1847 and used seventy stonemasons from Italy to construct solid artistic houses. Hunters Hill was proclaimed as a municipality on 5 January 1861. The first Gladesville Bridge constructed in 1881 linked the area to Drummoyne and the southern side of the Parramatta River.
