Settlement of the area dates from the 1860s, with land used mainly for farming and timber-getting. Population was minimal until the late 1800s, with growth into the early 1900s, aided by the area becoming popular for holidays. Significant residential development did not occur until the 1970s. Substantial growth took place during the 1980s. Rapid growth continued from the early 1990s, with the population more than doubling between 1991 and 2011 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area.
