History

Trolley bus Rocky Point Road,/Dillon Street, RamsgatePatrick Moore was granted 60 acres of land in 1812. Scarborough Park was created in the 1830s from part of Pat Moore's Swamp and it was named by the Hon. Thomas Holt after the English coastal town of Scarborough, Yorkshire and the First Fleet convict ship which was briefly anchored in Botany Bay in 1788.

Development of the area dates primarily from the 1850s, although little growth occurred until the late 1800s when land was subdivided and many country villas were built by wealthy people near the beach. Significant development did not occur until the post-war years. Ramsgate and Ramsgate Beach have both experienced an increase in population between 1996 and 2001, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
