Villawood Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1823, with land used mainly for farming and orcharding. Population was minimal until the 1840s, with growth through to the 1860s. Expansion continued during the 1920s, spurred by the opening of the railway line. The most significant development occurred from the post-war years, including public housing construction. The population was relatively stable during the 1990s, declined between 2001 and 2006, and then increased between 2006 and 2011. These fluctuations in population were due to changes in dwelling stock, the average number of persons living in each dwelling and dwelling occupancy rates.
Major features of the area include Villawood Shopping Centre, Hilwa Street Park, the Villawood railway station and Carramar Public School.
