Name origin

The origin of the place name Green Point is unknown, but may have been used to describe a richly timbered, green canopied area.

Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from 1839 when the first land grant was made. Land was used mainly for farming and orcharding. Population was minimal until the 1880s when the Green Point Estate was subdivided, with growth through to the early 1900s. Significant residential development did not occur until the post-war years, especially from the 1960s. The population increased during the 1990s, particularly between 1991 and 1996, as new dwellings were added to the area. The population was then relatively stable between 2001 and 2011 as fewer new dwellings were added.

Land use

Green Point is a residential and parkland area, with some small commercial areas.
