Kirribilli

SUBURB: Kirribilli

Kirribilli is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Kirribilli is located 3 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of North Sydney Council. Kirribilli is a harbourside suburb, sitting on the Lower North Shore of Sydney Harbour.

The name Kirribilli is derived from an Aboriginal word \'Kiarabilli\', which means \'good fishing spot\'. This suburb initially formed part of a grant to James Milson, after whom Milsons Point was named. The area was later sub-divided, first for the construction of large family residences in the 1840s, and then for the erection of Victorian terrace houses and 20th-Century blocks of flats. Prominent early landowners in Kirribilli included members of the Campbell and Gibbes families. Colonel John George Nathaniel Gibbes, the Collector of Customs for New South Wales, built \'Wotonga\' - the forerunner of Admiralty House - in 1842-43 on a five-acre site which he leased, and then purchased, from the Campbells. The Colonel\'s son, William John Gibbes, lived nearby in Beulah House (since demolished) during the 1840s.

Kirribilli is one of Australia\'s oldest and most established suburbs, as much of its architecture may suggest. The suburb contains Kirribilli House (the official Sydney residence of the Prime Minister), Admiralty House (the official Sydney residence of the Governor-General) and the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron. Admiralty House, originally a private dwelling belonging to Colonel John George Nathaniel Gibbes (see above), is Kirribilli\'s oldest extant building. The earliest portions go back to 1842. Kirribilli House was built next door by Adolphus Frederick Feez, a well-to-do merchant, in 1854-55.
