Description

Deepdene is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 9 km east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Boroondara. At the 2016 Census, Deepdene had a population of 2,035.Formerly a neighbourhood within the suburb of Balwyn, the Office of Geographic Names officially recognised Deepdene as a bounded locality in April 2010. A proposal to extend the suburb boundaries east to Balwyn Road and north to Belmore Road was voted down by Boroondara Council in April 2014. # History Deepdene Post Office, on Whitehorse Road, opened on 14 July 1913.Deepdene railway station was on the Outer Circle railway line, which opened on 24 March 1891 and closed to the public on 9 October 1927 due to lack of passengers. The train on this line was known by locals as the "Deepdene Dasher". A documentary called "Melbourne's Forgotten Railway - The Outer Circle" which details the history of the railway line was released in 2014. The railway line has since been converted into the Outercirle railway anniversary Trail; a walking and cycling path, fitted with informative signs that detail the history of the line. Recently, talks about extending the trail in Camberwell have been underway.Shops in the period 1959- 1966 included Mrs Gebbie's haberdashery, Lanyon's grocery store (Lanyon obtained a liquor licence in this historically dry area), Kevin Dennis car yard, a classic corner milkbar, a hardware store, a garden landscaping supply business, a commercial bakery. # Weather # Things to do
