Tipper Lookout was named  by the Manly Historical Society in 1952  to commemorate John D. Tipper`s achievement in founding the Muogamarra Sanctuary in 1934.

An early conservationist, John D. Tipper, saw that the Hawkesbury sandstone ridges and gullies were the preserve of unique animal and plant life. He managed to secure a tract of 3000 acres (1200 hectares) as Muogamarra Sanctuary. This was combined with the 700 hectare Sir Edward Hallstrom Faunal Reserve in 1967 to form Muogamarra Nature Reserve.
