Kogarah is named from an Aboriginal word meaning 'a place of rushes'.
Kogarah Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1808 when the first land grant was made, although growth was slow until the 1840s as there was no access to Cooks River and the area was filled with dense forest. In 1840 a dam was constructed at Cooks River, then a road was built and land was cleared. Settlement increased, with market gardens, orchards and vineyards established. Many Chinese settlers arrived after the gold rushes of the 1850s, with land being used mainly for agricultural purposes. Growth occurred following the opening of the railway in 1884. Significant development took place in the 1920s and 1950s. The population has increased slightly since the mid 1990s, largely a result of new dwellings being added to the area, particularly high density housing.
Major features of the area include TAFE NSW Sydney (St George College), James Cook Boys Technology High School, Moorefield Girls High School, Civic Avenue Reserve, Frys Reserve, Moorefield Reserve, Robertson Reserve, Scarborough Park, Victory Reserve and the Kogarah railway station.
