Marayong Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1900s when land was subdivided and sold. Land was used mainly for farming and market gardening. Growth was aided by the opening of the railway station in the 1920s. The most significant development occurred during the post-war years, particularly from the 1960s, aided by the establishment of public housing estates. The population more than doubled between 1976 and 1981. The population declined slightly between 1991 and 2006, and then increased slightly between 2006 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area.
Major features of the area include Harvey Park, Marayong Park, Marayong Heights Reserve, Osborne Park, the Marayong railway station and a number of schools.
