Double Bay Name Origin
Double Bay is named for the twin bays in the area. It was originally known as Keltie Bay.
Double Bay Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1790, although population was minimal until the 1830s when a village was established. Land was used mainly for farming and fishing. Growth took place during the 1880s and 1890s. Expansion continued in the 1920s and 1930s, when many apartments and bungalows were built. Significant development occurred in the post-war years, particularly during the 1950s, with Point Piper becoming a very prestigious area. The population and dwelling stock were relatively stable during the 1990s, and then increased slightly between 2001 and 2011.
