Legends say that Ben Buckler was named after a convict who inhabited a cave in the cliffs at North Bondi and died after a fall from a ledge.

Ben Buckler is the location of the Ben Buckler Gun Battery, which was built in 1892 and subsequently buried; it was later excavated by the Water Board and then reburied .[2]
