Cammeray is named after the Cammeraygal Aboriginal Tribe. Development of the area dates back to the 1880s, following the construction of a bridge that improved access to the area. It was built with the intention to sell new development on the north side of the natural gorge. Land was put up for sale but sales were largely unsuccessful until the 1900s. Land sales increased in 1909 when the tramway along Miller Street was extended.
Schools, Education & Institutes
Cammeray Public School and Northern Sydney Institute of TAFE (Crows Nest College) are both situated in this area. Surrounding suburbs offer a host of both private and public educational institutes.
