Petersham Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1793, with land used mainly for agriculture. A village developed between 1838 and 1860, aided by the opening of the railway line in 1855. Significant development occurred from the 1880s into the 1920s. Many flats and units were built from the post-war years. The population declined slightly during the 1990s, and then increased slightly between 2001 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area.
Major features of the area include the retail areas along Parramatta Road, New Canterbury Road and Audley Street, Sydney TAFE (Petersham College), MetroRehab Hospital, Inner West Council Petersham Service Centre, Petersham Park, Fanny Durack Pool, Brighton Street Reserve, Maundrell Park, Marr Playground, Quinn Playground, Petersham Bowling Club, the Petersham railway station and several schools.
