History of Bellevue Hill The suburb was part of what were once the traditional lands of the Cadigal people with fishing and collecting shellfish being their means of livelihood. In 1788, the Europeans arrived in the area, where the Irish-Australian immigrants referred to the place as “Vinegar Hill” after the 1789 uprising Battle of Vinegar Hill. Governor Lachlan Macquire thought the name was inappropriate and officially named the area Belle Vue, which means “beautiful view”. The area became part of Daniel Cooper’s estate and passed on to his nephew, Sir Daniel Cooper.
In the mid-19th century, the land along the suburb’s ridges saw the construction of the first residential houses. The tram line to the suburb, established in 1909, opened the area to more suburban development. Today, Bellevue Hill is one of Sydney’s wealthiest suburbs and is home to some of Australia’s most affluent.
