Waitara Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1822, with land used mainly for timber-getting. Population was minimal until the 1890s, following the opening of the railway line. Significant development occurred in the post-war period, particularly during the 1960s. The population increased during the early 1990s. and then declined slightly during the late 1990s. Rapid growth took place between 2001 and 2011 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area, particularly high density apartment housing.
Major features of the area include Orara Park, Rotary Park, Unwin Park, Waitara Park, the Waitara railway station and Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School.
