Suburb Overview

Croydon is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 27 km east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the City of Maroondah. At the 2011 Census, Croydon had a population of 23,553.

Dating back to the 1840s, land was first utilised for grazing and the first road cut through the area, now known as Croydon, was initially known as Sawmill Road, as a sawmill was nearby. Later it became known as Oxford Road and later Mt Dandenong Road, some time in the early 1900s.

Owing to the silvery-white grass and coarse in texture, the area we know now as Croydon was first called White Flats.

In 1868 parcels of land were surveyed and the first habitations were constructed out of wattle and daub. These were later rebuilt in timber and the area prospered in sheep, beef and dairy farming and sawmills. Orchards were soon established and thrived. Crops included apples, cherries, pears, peaches and plums. Indeed several street names in and around Croydon now reflect the impact orchards had on "White Flats".

In 1882 a single track railway line was constructed through to Lilydale. When opened on 1 December 1882 the station was called Warrandyte. Travellers would travel by rail to "Warrandyte" station and were then faced with a horse and coach ride to Warrandyte, some 10 km north, which was not well received by the vast majority of travellers, believing the Yarra River was close by. On 1 August 1884 it was renamed to Croydon railway station.

The origin of the name Croydon is English and was proposed by one Mr George Lacey in the 1880s. A resident of the Croydon area, Lacey suggested the name after the English town of his wife's birth.

From the mid 1880s Croydon started to develop and Mr James Hewish built not only his home, but several other business ventures, including a general store, newsagency, a butchers shop, hotel and planted various orchard trees. Several street names around the centre of Croydon reflect its previous usage. The Post Office opened on 1 December 1883 after the railway line arrived. A Nelson's Hill Post Office opened in the area in 1902 and was renamed Burnt Bridge in 1979.

In 1908 Croydon Hall, in Mt Dandenong Road, was built. It is now home to EV's Entertainment Centre.

In 1925 the Croydon section of the Lilydale railway line was electrified, with electrification arriving at Lilydale a month later. Croydon railway station was rebuilt in the 1980s. As part of its increasing passenger traffic the bus station/interchange was revamped in the early 2000s and is used by Invicta and Ventura Bus Services.
