A point on the Hawkesbury River in Gloucester Reach about five hundred metres north east (downstream) of the conflux of the Colo River. Named after the property ‘Paradise Point’ established on this site in 1804 (Transported To Paradise, Douglas R Huxley). Thomas Huxley Senior received a grant of 70 acres in 1804 which was discribed as 70 acres of land at Paradise Point, also known as Lower Portland (Transported to Paradise, Douglas R Huxley).
The locality of Paradise Point can be reached either by boat or by Greens Road, Lower Portland. The land granted to Thomas Huxley is in private ownership and may not be accessed without permission of the landholders.
