Suburb Overview

Doncaster is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 15 km north-east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the City of Manningham. At the 2011 Census, Doncaster had a population of 18,359.

The suburb, locally known as 'Donny', just as its name sake in the UK, is situated on 8.9 km

The border of the suburb follows the Koonung Creek from Doncaster Road, along the south of the suburb to Wetherby Road, which, with Victoria Street, forms the eastern border. The northern border follows Ruffey Creek, Williamsons Road, Manningham Road and Ayr Street, to the junction of the Koonung Creek and Doncaster Road.

In 1841 Frederic Unwin, a Sydney solicitor, purchased 5,120 acres of land, including most of the present suburb of Doncaster. The land was purchased from the Crown for one pound an acre under the terms of the short-lived Special Survey regulations. The area was sometimes known as Unwin's Special Survey.

The Doncaster region was settled in the 1860s and 1870s, predominantly by German settler orchardists. The German community was named Waldau, but the name Doncaster gradually became commonly accepted. A Lutheran church was the first one in Doncaster in 1858. A Lutheran school opened in 1860 and a denominational school in 1861. Doncaster Post Office opened on 17 May 1860.

Schramm's Cottage, an historic stone cottage originally located in Doncaster Road, was relocated to the site of the original Lutheran Church building in Victoria Street in the 1970s. The remains of the Waldau Cemetery, where approximately 150 burials took place between 1853 and 1888, are located in the grounds of Schramm's Cottage.

In the 1880s an observation tower was constructed on Doncaster Hill, which attracted day-trippers to the countryside.

Doncaster was the location of the first electric tram to run in Melbourne in 1889. The tram started in Doncaster and ended in Box Hill. Consequently this was named "Tram Road". However, the service did not earn any profit, so it ended in 1896 due to feuds with land holders and financial problems. The main road through the suburb, Doncaster Road, was formally named Main Street.

Doncaster remained an orchard area until the 1970s, with the majority of houses built from the 1950s to the 1980s.

Doncaster Hill is an ambitious project transforming Central Doncaster into an apartment and retail mecca. Being only 12 km from the city and with fantastic views of the Melbourne CBD skyline, much time and investment has been placed by the City of Manningham. However, a lot of apartments have not sold as predicted and there is much controversy about the cost and scale of the project, and the impact that extra traffic congestion will create - especially as there is poor public transport services in the area.

Doncaster was first settled with the first electric tram in the Southern Hemisphere in the late 19th century. Operating from Box Hill to Doncaster, the tram opened up accessibility to much land in the area. Unfortunately, the line did not last more than a few years.
