Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from 1809 when the first land grant was made. Land was used mainly for farming and market gardening. Population was minimal until the late 1800s. Growth took place in the 1930s and 1940s, spurred by the opening of the railway line. Significant development occurred during the post-war years, with rapid growth in the 1950s and 1960s. The population has increased gradually since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area, particularly medium and high density housing.
