Tamarama Name Origin
Initially known as Dixon Bay by early European settlers, the name was changed to Tamarama in the 1800s. Tamarama is probably a derivation of the Aboriginal name 'Gamma Gamma' (possible meaning 'storm'), which appeared on maps of the coastline in the 1860s by the Military or Naval Authority.
Tamarama Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, although growth was minimal until the late 1800s. The Bondi Aquarium amusement park operated in the area from 1887 till 1906, and then operated as Wonderland City until 1911. Residential expansion took place during the post-war years. The population was relatively stable during the 1990s, and then increased slightly between 2001 and 2011.
Major features of the area include Tamarama Park, Marks Park, Gaerloch Reserve and Tamarama Beach.
