Our History


Hunters Hill Medical Practice continues a history of medicine in the local area since 1860.

In 2012, Dominic Bowes conducted a research project on behalf of HHMP, about the history of general practice in our area. After extensive interviews with long standing residents and many hours reviewing our suburb's historical archives, as well as the Sydney Morning Hearld archive, obituaries, and the British and Australian Journals of Medicine. Dominic produced an informative and illuminating paper, one that gives real insight into Hunters Hill's medical past, as well as uncovering some of the unique and dedicated individuals who contributed so much to the formation and development of our community.

The full documentation of Dominic's project is available here.
