Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the late 1800s, with land used mainly for farming and viticulture. Significant development did not occur until the 1980s, following the acquisition of land by the South Australian Land Commission for housing as part of the Golden Grove development. Rapid development took place from the mid 1980s into the early 1990s. The population declined slightly from the mid 1990s, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
