Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the 1860s when a village was established. Land was used mainly for farming and grazing. Some growth took place from the 1880s into the early 1900s, spurred by the construction of the railway. The most significant development occurred in the post-war years. The population increased slightly during the 1990s, and then declined slightly between 2001 and 2011, a result of few dwellings being added to the area and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling. Population growth is expected in the future.
