Deep Dive

A Slow-Growing Suburb with a Diverse History

The land that now forms Dianella was originally distributed to four settlers between 1829 and 1930. Early development was slow because the soil was deemed unsuitable for agriculture. However, the Intercolonial Investment Company of Sydney subdivided much of the land in the 1880s. By 1919, the only development was along Walter Road. In 1958, four localities were amalgamated to form Dianella, and a growth boom occurred soon after. Early settlers such as Birkett, Drummond, and Drake are honoured in Dianella’s street names
