The town area was first settled by Europeans in 1848, when Andrew Risby, his wife Louisa and their five young children arrived to settle and develop farmland from what was mostly a thickly forested wilderness.
The town has a good shopping centre plus a nice beach.

I took a few photos and have posted normal and HDR. Interesting the transformation.
