    Wa­ter­loo took its name from the Bat­tle of Wa­ter­loo in 1815, when Al­lied and Pruss­ian forces under the Duke of Welling­ton and Blücher de­feated the French forces under Napoleon Bona­parte. In the 1820s Wa­ter­loo began sup­port­ing in­dus­trial op­er­a­tions in­clud­ing the Fisher and Dun­can Paper Mill and the Wa­ter­loo Flour Mills owned by William Hutchin­son and Daniel Cooper. William Hutchin­son, su­per­in­ten­dent of con­victs and pub­lic works, had been granted 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) of land in 1823. He sold Wa­ter­loo Farm to Daniel Cooper (1785-1853) and Solomon Levey (1794-1833). Cooper later bought out Levey's share and on his death the Wa­ter­loo Es­tate passed onto his nephew, also named Daniel Cooper, who was the first speaker of the New South Wales Leg­isla­tive As­sem­bly.

    Wa­ter­loo is his­tor­i­cally a work­ing class re­gion. Since early 2000s, the re­gion has un­der­gone some de­gree of gen­tri­fi­ca­tion with a ris­ing busi­ness dis­trict fo­cus­ing on tech­nol­ogy-ori­ented firms and the de­vel­op­ment of more green space such as parks. By 2006, me­dian in­di­vid­ual in­come in Wa­ter­loo was slightly higher than the Aus­tralian average. The sub­urb main­tains nu­mer­ous pub­lic hous­ingapart­ments. Wa­ter­loo is also a pop­u­lar sub­urb to live for Syd­ney's large Gay and Les­bian pop­u­la­tion due to its close­ness to nearby sub­urbs of Surry Hills and Dar­linghurst. The Wa­ter­loo Urban Con­ser­va­tion Area is a res­i­den­tial area of pre­dom­i­nantly 19th cen­tury ter­race and cot­tage hous­ing. New de­vel­op­ment and re­de­vel­op­ment in this area is en­cour­aged to be sym­pa­thetic to the ex­ist­ing her­itage style.
