Tempe is named after an early home in the nearby area, which was named after Vale of Tempe in Ancient Greece.
Tempe Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1830s, with a village laid out in 1842. Growth took place during the late 1800s and early 1900s, spurred by the opening of the railway line in 1884. Expansion continued during the post-war years. The population declined slightly between 1991 and 2006, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling. The population and dwelling stock increased marginally between 2006 and 2011.
Major features of the area include the retail areas along the Princes Highway, Tempe Recreational Reserve, Robyn Webster Sports Centre, Tillman Park, Tempe Lands, Green Street Park, Kendrick Park, Station Street Reserve, Toyer Street Reserve, Tempe Wetlands, Tempe Golf Driving Range, Tempe Boat Ramp, the Tempe railway station, the Cooks River and two schools.
