Rapid growth took place from the 1950s to the 1970s. The population declined slightly during the late 1990s, and then increased between 2001 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area, largely on what was part of the Holsworthy Military Reserve. Population growth is expected to continue, primarily from the Georges Fair development on the previous Boral Brickworks site.
