City of Monash

Monash City Council acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land now known as Monash and pays respect to their Elders past and present.

The City of Monash is named after a man regarded as one of Australia's greatest heroes. General Sir John Monash was a civil engineer and volunteer soldier who rose to the highest rank in the Australian Army by the end of World War 1.

His life and career represent the opportunity that Australia provides for migrants and their children to excel and contribute. He is a model of leadership, community service, and achievement for everybody living and working in the City of Monash today.

The early 1900s were active years for the Waverley area. In 1905 the Glen Waverley township, formerly known as Black Flat, was officially gazetted and Waverley became Mount Waverley. Among many significant milestones, Mount Waverley Primary School was opened in 1906 and the first football match at Glen Waverley Reserve was played in 1908.

St Stephens Church is the oldest church in what was known as the City of Waverley and was opened in 1865.

Mount Waverley Library is home to The Waverley Historical Society (WHS), formed in 1970 to record and preserve the history of the district. Many of the members of the society were descendants of the pioneer settlers.
