Freshwater Name Origin
Freshwater is thought to be named after a stream of fresh water which ran down to the beach. Freshwater was known as Harbord until 2008.
Freshwater Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1815 when the first land grant was made. Growth was minimal until the 1880s, with expansion continuing during the interwar period. Significant development occurred in the post-war years, especially during the 1950s and 1960s, including the construction of medium density housing. The population and dwelling stock were relatively stable between 1991 and 2006. The population increased slightly between 2006 and 2011, largely due to an increase in both dwelling occupancy rates and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
Major features of the area include Harbord Village (shopping centre), Freshwater Village (shopping centre), Freshwater Beach, Freshwater Rockpool, Cavill Street Reserve, Cooksey Reserve, Freshwater Beach Reserve, Harbord Park, Jacka Park, McKillop Park, Palomar Reserve and two schools.
