Name origin

Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the 1850s, with land used mainly for dairy farming. Population was minimal until the 1880s, with further growth following the opening of the railway line in 1916. Expansion continued during the interwar period. Significant development occurred during the post-war years, aided by public housing construction. The population has been relatively stable since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area, but a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling. Growth is expected in the future, largely from the Everton Park Urban Village development.
