Monterey Name Origin
A small group of shops were built on Chuter Avenue, near Monterey Street. When the post office opened here it was known as the Monterey post office. The suburb was declared by the local council of the same name.
Monterey Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates primarily from the 1850s. Little growth occurred until the 1870s and 1890s when many country villas were built by wealthy people, and land adjacent to the beach was subdivided for housing by speculators. Significant development occurred in the interwar period and the post-war years. In more recent years, medium density housing has attributed to growth. The population has increased slightly since the mid 1990s, largely a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
Major features of the area include Lady Robinsons Beach, Monterey Baths, A S Tanner Reserve and Scarborough Park.
