Suburb Overview

Deer Park is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 17 km west from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Brimbank. At the 2011 Census, Deer Park had a population of 16,204.

The suburb was originally named Kororoit Creek, after the creek running through the suburb but was renamed after the Melbourne Hunt Club used the area to house their stock of game deer. The original Hunt Club building still stands on Ballarat Road, next to the Deer Park sports oval and is now a community centre.

Following the discovery of gold in Ballarat and Bendigo, to the west, there became a great demand for explosives. Deer Park was chosen as the site of Melbourne's first explosives factory, the Albion Explosives Factory, in the 1870s.

The site was chosen for its isolation, as it was several miles from the outskirts of Melbourne. The availability of water in Kororoit Creek was also a factor.

The Post Office opened in 1878 as Kororoit Creek and was renamed Deer Park in 1889.

In the 1920s suburban sprawl threatened the isolation of the factory but before a move was necessary, the sprawl was halted by the depression of the 1930s.

A fatal accident at the factory in 1923 led to production of Black powder being stopped.

In 1928, Imperial Chemical Industries of Australia and New Zealand took control of the factory.

A new Black Powder factory was built in Deer Park in 1936 and enlarged during World War II. Charcoal from Australian timbers also began to be manufactured.

With labour shortages and a large demand for products during the post-war boom, ICI commenced housing development in Deer Park to attract workers to the area and many of the surrounding streets are named for localities in the UK, where ICI had operations.

From the early 1980s-1990s, Deer Park became a very popular location with migrants from Bosnia-Herzegovina.
