Ramsgate

Ramsgate Beach is surrounded by the suburbs of Monterey, Ramsgate and Sans Souci. Lady Robinson Beach and Cook Park run along the eastern border of Ramsgate Beach, on Botany Bay.

History
Ramsgate Beach, named after a seaside resort in England, was developed 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.
