Governor Bligh's 'Observation Point' is up for sale!

How would you like to own a piece of Australia’s history?

Governor Bligh posted his soldiers here at the turn of the 18th Century, not only for the amazing view it afforded but as there was a small cave for shelter, a sandy beach for water access, and a fresh spring on the hillside (which is still there!) for fresh drinking water. 

The soldiers were to watch out for smugglers bringing rum into the new colony and hence Observation Point became the name of this property and located directly opposite is Rum Runners Point, which also has a very interesting history.
