The Sans Souci Peninsula: A History of the Suburbs of Dolls Point, Monterey, Ramsgate, Sans Souci and Sandringham by R. W. Rathbone


Every part of the St George District has a character all its own but few have as interesting and diverse a history as the Sans Souci Peninsula.

It is an area that was ignored by the early explorers and avoided by potential settlers who did not appreciate its charms and attractions until long after other parts of the district had been developed.

This story attempts to trace its transition from a neglected backwater, shunned by all but a handful of intrepid pioneers into one of the most desirable and sought after residential areas in southern Sydney.
