The History of Whale Beach

The origin of the name Whale Beach is unknown, although it is presumed to be associated either with the shape of the northern headland, or a beaching of a whale (we prefer the beaching version!)

Whale Beach was originally part of a 400 acre grant to James Napper in 1816. This land was virtually untouched during the nineteenth century. In 1900 it was offered for sale by the Barrenjoey Land Company in large blocks, suitable for pasture, but none of the land sold. In 1912 the land was offered again in smaller blocks and all sold. This was the beginning of development at Whale Beach.

In 1913 Whale Beach Kiosk was built and supplied the needs of visitors. By 1918 Whale Beach road had been laid down and Jack Webster made further roads from 1927. Gradually several holiday homes were built. From the 1950s when transport became easier and motor cars more common, the area became a residential suburb.
