Wattle Grove is a newer residential area. Development dates back to the 1990s on what was part of the Holsworthy Military Reserve, and rapid growth took place between 1991 and 1996.
The population declined marginally between 2001 and 2006, a result of stability in dwelling stock and a decline in average household size. Wattle Grove has a Village Plaza Shopping Centre, a lake and school, with easy access to amenities via surrounding suburbs.
