Real Estate Category: Suburbs
Empire Bay was originally known as Sorrento being the name of a large boarding house in the locality. The land was subdivided in 1905. The name changed to Empire Bay in 1908 when a Postal Receiving Office was opened in a building attached to the boarding house. The name was changed because there was already a post office named Sorrento in Victoria and Empire Bay was chosen because there was no other such name in the Commonwealth. The name was officially changed on 24 May 1908. William Huggart who owned Sorrento House was the first postmaster. In 1909 the status of the office was changed to Post Office. It was moved into C. C. Swinburne’s general store when he became Postmaster in 1910.
What Sydney Mums on the Central Coast members are saying:Empire Bay, I live in this beautiful little suburb. It’s quiet, peaceful and so friendly. We moved here 13yrs ago from Sydney and it was the best decision we have ever made. I suggest you come for a day trip, if you like you can catch the ferry from Woy Woy, check out our award winning coffee shop with the best coffee on the coast and the gorgeous little boutique s for style, take a walk to the waterfront and around the suburb and decide for yourself. I promise you won’t be disappointed 😊❤️ – Prue
