Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from 1845, with land used mainly for farming, orcharding and vineyards. Gradual growth took place from the 1860s into the early 1900s, aided by the construction of the railway line in 1899 and the establishment of an army camp in 1910. Significant development occurred during the post-war years. The population declined slightly during the late 1990s, and then increased between 2001 and 2006, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
