Settlement of the area dates from 1890s, spurred by the opening of the railway line to Mornington. Land was used mainly for farming and grazing. Significant residential development did not occur until the 1960s, particularly from the 1980s. Substantial growth took place from the early 1990s, with the population doubling between 1991 and 2006, a result of large numbers of new dwellings being added to the area. Growth continued between 2006 and 2011.
