Niberlooner was the aboriginal name for Sullivan's Cove which was renamed on 21st February 1804 by Lieutenant David Collins. He made his way ashore via a small rocky outcrop he called Hunter Island. Collins chose the Cove because of its fresh water supply and protected anchorage. Thousands of convicts landed here from England. Formerly the center for salt factories, abattoirs and bone yards, Sullivans Cove is enjoying a new lease of life as a cultural and residential area.
