Settlement of the area dates from mid 1800s, with growth during the late 1800s. Significant development did not occur until the 1960s and 1970s, beginning as a northerly residential extension to central Modbury. The population declined slightly between 1991 and 2006, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling. The population and dwelling stock were relatively stable between 2006 and 2011.
Modbury North is an established residential area.
Major features of the area include Druminor Reserve, Ladywood Reserve, Burragah Recreation Centre and one school.
