Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from 1837 when a mission was established by German immigrants. Population was minimal until the 1880s and 1890s, aided by the construction of the railway line in 1882. Expansion continued during the early 1900s. Significant development occurred during the post-war years. The population has increased slightly since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
