Settlement of the area dates from the 1840s, with land used mainly for dairy farming. Growth took place during the 1870s and 1880s as land was subdivided. More substantial development occurred during the interwar period, and again during the post-war years. The population was relatively stable during the 1990s, and then increased slightly between 2001 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area. Growth is expected in the future from the St Clair housing development on the former Cheltenham Park Racecourse, south of Torrens Road and west of Cheltenham Parade.
