Suburb Overview

Dangar Island is a forested island, 29 hectares in area, in the Hawkesbury River, just north of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is a suburb of Hornsby Shire. It has a permanent population of about 250, which swells dramatically during holiday seasons. The island is serviced regularly by the Dangar Island Ferry service that departs from Brooklyn and takes about ten minutes. The Brooklyn ferry is itself adjacent to the CityRail station of Hawkesbury River. The ferry service is in operation 7 days a week.

Dangar Island has been known to the local Guringai Aborigines for thousands of years. The first European to visit the area was Governor Arthur Phillip, who explored the lower river by small boat in March 1788 within weeks of the First Fleet 's arrival. He named it Mullet Island, for the abundance of fish in the local Hawksbury River. At first the local people were friendly towards him, but when he returned a year later, they would not come into contact. By 1790, over half the Guringai people had succumbed to the smallpox the British had brought with them.

The island was purchased in 1864 and renamed by Henry Carey Dangar, the son of Henry Dangar,a surveyor, pastoralist and parliamentarian.

Dangar leased the island to the Union Bridge Co of Chicago for the construction of the original Hawkesbury River Rail Bridge between 1886-1889. About 400 Americans and their families lived there and the island boasted a large social hall, school, library and its own newspaper.

In the 1920s the island, which is barely a five-minute walk across, was divided into residential plots, though space was reserved on the beach, the flat and the top of the hill for recreational use. Dangar Island Post Office opened on 1 September 1951 and closed in 1986.

In contrast to much of the surrounding area, which is designated national park, Dangar Island is relatively heavily inhabited. This was not always so. The island has several tarmacked tracks that have recently been closed off to all but the community fire truck, the council ute and vehicles with special permits.

There are no private cars on the island. At one stage a couple of golf carts were imported, but due to protests from some of the island's residents, they have been phased out. The wheelbarrow is the main method used to haul goods from the ferry. The island has one shopvisitors which has a bar. The island also has a community hall that supports several community groups, including a children's film workshop, and mains water.

Until recently, Dangar's flavour was that of an artists' colony. In recent years, however, the accessibility and charm of the location have meant an explosion in house prices to the point that only the wealthy can now consider purchasing homes there, which many now do as weekend retreats. New building on Dangar also continues, contributing to the changing character of the island.

The island was connected to the water supply system by the then Sydney-based Water Board in the 1980s. The island has recently been connected to the Sydney sewerage system by Sydney Water, via a sub-marine pipeline to the mainland and a state-of-the-art treatment plant in Brooklyn. Septic tanks are being quickly phased out by most residents, providing a boost to the Hawkesbury waterways surrounding Dangar Island.
