Suburb Overview

Highett is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 16 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district and 2 km east of Port Phillip Bay. Its Local Government Area is the City of Bayside and the City of Kingston. At the 2011 Census, Highett had a population of 10,263. Highett is bordered by Hampton / Sandringham to the west, Hampton East / Moorabbin to the north and Cheltenham to the east and south.

The name comes from Highett Road and the name of the local railway station, which was built when the line from Caulfield to Mordialloc was opened in 1881. Highett Road is believed to have been named either after John Highett, a grazier and/or drover or William Highett, parliamentarian and local land owner. Little development happened after the arrival of the railway, Highett Post Office not opening until 17 November 1924.

The Highett Town Hall was opened on September 11, 1926 and was used for dances, balls, vaudeville performances and later as a cinema. However it always struggled to find a profitable means to continue operation. It was finally purchased by the Moorabbin City Council in 1966 and then demolished to make way for the Highett library, which opened on August 1, 1969.

In 1927 a number of Anglicans banded together to open St Stephens Church of England, in Donald Street, Highett. This was the first church built for the local inhabitants of Highett and by 1937 there was also a Catholic Church.

In 1939 the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation or CAC constructed a factory in Highett to build aircraft wings and fuselages to support Australia gearing up for World War Two. The factory continued operation until the end of the war in 1945 when the tradesmen were transferred to the main CAC factory in Fishermans Bend and the Bay Road site was closed.

Highett's most substantial residential growth began in the 1950s. Industry was attracted to the area, including a large CSIRO research facility. A primary school was opened in 1953 and a high school in 1956, although Highett High School is now part of Sandringham College. The strip shopping centre near the railway line expanded, and still remains active. The suburb is undergoing substantial change and rejuvenation with a high number of residential properties being renovated or redeveloped due to the suburb's proximity to Melbourne City and Port Phillip Bay which has attracted a large number of younger families and professionals. In 2011 construction of a substantial new shopping centre and apartment complex began on Highett road, using land once owned by the CSIRO.

In 1925 a parcel train hit a car at the Wickham Road railway crossing, killing nine people inside the car. The gatekeeper was found not guilty of the charge of manslaughter, the jury finding the incident was due to the fault of the system and not through human negligence.

The City of Moorabbin built an Olympic length swimming pool on Turner Road in Highett in 1964. The 1966 Melways street directory lists the pool as the City of Moorabbin Southern Swimming Pool. In the 1990s the pool was extensively refurbished and is now called the Waves Leisure Centre.

The suburb has an Australian Rules football team, The Highett Bulldogs, competing in the Southern Football League.

The club house is situated on the Main oval of Highett Reserve, which is on Turner Road in Highett(behind the Waves Leisure Center). Its senior team participates in SFL Division 1, and the junior sides participate in the Metro South Junior Football League. The club supports 2x u/9s, 1x u/10s, 1x u/11s, 1x u/12s, 1x u/13s, 1x u/14s, 1x u/15s, 1x u/17s, a reserves side and a senior side.
