Milsons Point is an area in the city of Sydney, which is in the Australian state of New South Wales. It is at the lower end of the North Shore. The neighbourhood is in the North Sydney Council local government area, which is 3 kilometres north of Sydney’s central business district.
Milsons Point is also the northernmost point that sticks out into Sydney Harbour. It is right next to Sydney Cove, which is where the first European settlement was built in 1788.
James Milson (1783–1872) was a free settler from Lincolnshire who gave the area its name. Milson started a successful business by supplying ships with stone ballast, fresh water, and the products of his dairy, orchard, and vegetable gardens. Milson moved to the area around Milsons Point and started a business that supplied ships with stone ballast, fresh water, and the products of his dairy, orchard, and vegetable garden. Milson moved to the area around Jeffrey Street, Kirribilli, on 120 acres of land leased from Robert Campbell in the early 1820s (1769–1846). Milson got 50 acres of land next to Campbell’s in 1824. In 1826, a firestorm ripped through the area and burned Milson’s house, orchard, dairy, and farm. He rebuilt them (refer to 1840s map). Campbell and Milson went to court in 1831 because Milson had not paid for his 120-acre lease.  Milson lived near Jeffrey Street until 1831, when he built “Brisbane House” on his 50-acre property overlooking Lavender Bay. The next house he built on his 50 acres was called “Grantham.” In the 1840s, Milson rented only the part of Campbell’s 120-acre property near Jeffrey Street where Campbell’s orchard was. Milson died in 1872 at his home, “Gratham,” which was in what is now the suburb of Milsons Point but was then called the Municipality of East St. Leonards.
In the early 1920s, the last of the family’s holdings in the lower North Shore area were taken back for building the Harbour Bridge and the roads that went with it.
James Milson was one of the first people to live at Milsons Point (1783–1872)The northernmost part of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is supported by Milsons Point. The central business district of Sydney is easy to get to from Milsons Point by bridge, boat, and train. From the south, the Warringah Freeway goes from Chatswood to the central business district of Sydney.
On the northern side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the Milsons Point train station. The Balmain, Pyrmont Bay, and Rydalmere ferry lines all stop at the Milsons Point ferry port, which is south-west of the neighbourhood and west of the bridge. In addition to trains, buses run from Milson’s Point to the Lower North Shore and Northern Beaches. Buses take kids from Bradfield Park to North Sydney schools.
