Information

Dandenong is is a city within Melbourne at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges. Originally a grazing area, milling of the red gum timber became an important industry in the town's early days, with charcoal burning, tanning, quarrying, brick making, and livestock market developing soon after. The post-war industrial boom brought an influx of European migrants, particularly from Italy and Greece. This caused the creation of several suburbs of Dandenong including the public housing estate of Doveton. n the 1950s, Melbourne rapidly expanded south east along the Princes Highway and Dandenong railway line to Dandenong and beyond and it became major metropolitan manufacturing and commercial area as industry extended into the outer suburbs. By the late 1960s, it was officially a suburban area of Melbourne and central Dandenong was transformed by modern buildings.
