Located at the southern-most tip of the Cronulla peninsula and forming the northern head to Port Hacking, Hungry Point Reserve is a prominent Sutherland Shire landmark providing spectacular views across Port Hacking. The reserve, with its scenic landscape, sensitive ecology, historic buildings, multiple land uses and important Aboriginal, fisheries science and migrant heritage, is a rich and complex public asset.
The NSW State government is keen to see this unique site open to the public and has provided funding to begin this process.
The Overarching Vision for the site is:
“Hungry Point is a place that celebrates its unique European, Aboriginal and natural values and enriches the lives of Cronulla, Shire and Sydney residents, visitors and workers”.
Key principles for this site are:
- be a key element in open space opportunities for Sutherland Shire and beyond;
- protect and enhance the European, Aboriginal and natural values of the site;
- provide a place for residents, visitors and workers to reflect on and appreciate the unique locality and spiritual, historic and heritage connections of the site;
- provide a social place for leisure and recreation;
- connect the site to the Esplanade, Cronulla, and beyond; and
- respond positively and sensitively to the site’s complexity.
