Development of the area dates primarily from 1969. Rapid growth took place during the 1970s and 1980s, with expansion slowing during the early 1990s. The population declined slightly between 1996 and 2006, and then was relatively stable between 2006 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.
Kallaroo is an established residential area, with substantial parklands along the coast.
