Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from 1802 when the first land grant was made. Land was used mainly for farming. Population was minimal until the late 1800s, aided by the establishment of many orchards. The most significant development occurred in the post-war years, with rapid growth from the late 1990s. The population quadrupled between 1996 and 2006 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area. Growth slowed between 2006 and 2011 as fewer new dwellings were constructed. Rapid growth is expected to resume, with the northern section being part of the North West Growth Centre.
