A brief history of the area

The history of Mouille Point dates back to the early 18th century when ships navigating Table Bay faced treacherous conditions. This prompted efforts to construct a protective barrier at Mouille Point. Despite the labour of enslaved people and convicts, persistent waves hindered progress, resulting in minimal construction progress after three years. 

In 1781, the French further contributed to the area's history by establishing the Mouille Point Battery nearby. Today, Mouille Point is a charming suburb with a fascinating historical background.
