Waverley Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1820s. Population was minimal until the 1860s when the village of Charing Cross was established. Gradual growth took place from the late 1800s into the early 1900s, aided by the opening of the tram line from Darlinghurst in 1881. Expansion continued during the post-war years. The population generally increased slightly from the early 1990s as new dwellings were added to the area.
Major features of the area include War Memorial Hospital Waverley, Charing Cross Village, Simpson Park, Varna Park, Waverley College Swimming Pool, Waverley Bowling Club, Waverley College, St Catherine’s School, St Clare’s College Waverley, St Charles Catholic Primary School and Waverley Public School.
