Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s, with land used mainly for farming and grazing. Some growth took place from the late 1800s into the early 1900s, spurred by the construction of the railway line. The most significant development occurred in the post-war years. Population was minimal until the 1970s. The population grew slightly between 1996 and 2006. Rapid growth took place between 2006 and 2011, with the population trebling in this period, a result of large numbers of new dwellings being added to the area. Population growth is expected to continue.
