Voyager Point takes its name from the commemorative park which was established following the loss of HMAS Voyager with the loss of 82 lives after the destroyer collided with the aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne in February 1964. This area was formerly the East Hills Naval Estate, which contained about 70 married quarters for families of members in the Royal Australian Navy.
The area includes many native flora, fauna and walkways through the bushland areas. A footbridge across the Georges River connects the suburb to East Hills, near Henry Lawson Drive. The Avenue is the only access road into the suburb from Heathcote Road.
The original streets in the suburb, such as Torch and Pelorus, were named after ships of the Second Fleet. The suburb is a relatively new development by Delfin Lend Lease on land formerly belonging to Holsworthy Barracks.
