Suburb Overview

Diamond Creek is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 23 km north-east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Nillumbik. At the 2011 Census, Diamond Creek had a population of 11,504.

The suburb is named after the Diamond Creek watercourse, a tributary of the Yarra River, which flows through the area in a generally southward direction. The name relates to a story of a farmer whose prized bull, named 'Diamond' because of the lozenge shape on its forehead, drowned in the creek.

Early white settlers in the Diamond Creek area are thought to have been timber getters and paling splitters. The township was established near the site of the Caledonia gold run, discovered in 1841. The Diamond Reef was found in 1863, and the township of Diamond Creek was subsequently developed, the Post Office opening on 7 February 1863. In 1864 a Methodist church, and a school were established. The township was surveyed between 1886 and 1887. The name Nillumbik was given to the area around the town, which lasted until the turn of the century. After the gold rush, the area was used for orchards and small scale farming. The railway line from Eltham to Hurstbridge was opened in 1912, including a railway station at Diamond Creek.

In the postwar years, population increased dramatically in Diamond Creek and its neighbouring areas. The Diamond Valley Shire was created out of the northern part of the Shire of Heidelberg in 1964. Further population growth occurred throughout the 1970s.

The early twentieth century saw a decline in the orchard industry, as orchards in Melbourne's eastern townships such as Doncaster and Nunawading, fell into favour due to better marketing. Diamond Creek remained relatively untouched during the boom in recreational travel that followed the popularity of the motor car.

Gold was first found on a site at the top of Fraser Street in 1862 by two brothers. The owner of the property, Dr J B Phipps, floated a company and sank a shaft. Over the next 50 years the mine developed into a major local industry, employing up to 200 men at its peak, going down to 300 metres and drawing 5000 ounces of gold a year.

On Wednesday 20 January 1915 a spark escaped from the boiler and set fire to the entire above ground plant and buildings. Because of the depth of water which accumulated, it was found unprofitable to re-open the main shaft. A serious attempt was made in 1948 but again the depth of water was insurmountable.

The Diamond Creek Shopping Centre and railway station are located on the banks of Diamond Creek, and the Hurstbridge railway line follows the course of Diamond Creek northwards from Eltham to its terminus at Hurstbridge.

Schools in Diamond Creek include Plenty Valley Montessori School, Sacred Heart Primary School, Diamond Creek Primary School, Diamond Creek East Primary School and Diamond Valley College.

The Diamond Creek Community Centre is jointly administered by the Shire of Nillumbik and the YMCA, and provides a venue for basketball, gymnasium and group fitness classes, child care, community classes and public and private functions. The centre also houses Nillumbik's Maternal & Child Health Service. The Community Centre served as an evacuation point, providing emergency accommodation, first aid and government relief to local residents affected by the February 2009 Victorian bushfires.

A prominent building in Diamond Creek is St John's Anglican church, located at the top of Main Road.
