Chirnside Park  Victoria

Thirty-three kilometres east of Melbourne, the suburb of Chirnside Park has developed largely on the Mooroolbark Park homestead and grazing property.

The property had a succession of owners from 1845 until 1921 when it was bought by George Chirnside who subsequently sold the Werribee Park headquarters of the family grazing interests to centre the operation on Mooroolbark.

Chirnside died in 1941 and Mooroolbark was administered as a grazing property by trustees until 1956 when a development company won the Lillydale Shire Council’s approval to subdivide the land.

The subdivision’s original name of Chirnside Park has endured and the housing estate includes a country club built round the old Mooroolbark homestead.

Modern Chirnside Park is part of the Yarra Ranges Shire which flanks the Dandenong Ranges. And if you can't find the time to explore the Dandenong Ranges National Park, do yourself a favour with a visit to Karwarra Garden.

Spread over 2ha of landscaped gardens dominated by stringybark, peppermint gums, mountain grey gums and blackwood wattle, Karwarra is a tranquil place in tune with the smells and sounds of typical Dandenong bushland.
