About the profile areas

The 2016 Estimated Resident Population for Leumeah is 10,139, with a population density of 22.64 persons per hectare.

Location and boundaries

Leumeah is bounded by Rose Payten Drive, Pembroke Road and Westmoreland Road in the north, the locality of Kentlyn in the east, Smiths Creek Reserve, Macquarie Avenue, Burns Road, Lindesay Street and Leumeah Creek in the south, and Campbelltown Road in the west.

Name origin

Leumeah is named after an early property in the area, which was named from an Aboriginal phrase meaning "here I rest".

Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land used mainly for farming. The first subdivision took place in the 1920s. Significant development did not occur until the late 1950s. Rapid growth took place during the 1960s and 1970s. The population declined between 1991 and 2006, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling. The population then increased between 2006 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly medium density housing.

Land use

Leumeah is an established residential area, with some industrial areas in the west.
