History

Blue Haven was once made up of several dirt roads (the main road being 'Roper Road', the only way in or out of Blue Haven at the time) and surrounded by bushland. It's now made up of hundreds of streets and has 3 different main entries and exits. The wetland areas are now preserved areas. Blue Haven, in the past, would suffer from constant bushfires in the dry season.
