Heatherdale 3132Heatherdale is a small residential locality, 22 km. east of Melbourne, between Mitcham and Ringwood. It is situated on a municipal boundary between Whitehorse and Maroondah cities (formerly the Nunawading/Ringwood municipal boundary).
The name comes from Heatherdale Road which was named after William Witt's Heatherdale farm. The road had manned railway crossing gates in the 1920s. During that period there was increasing subdivision of land, and agitation began for a railway station near Heatherdale Road. Over twenty years passed until postwar factories and additional building allotments stimulated the building of a station, which took the name of the road. A progress association was formed in 1946 and in 1953 a kindergarten was opened.
The Heatherdale area had a primary school in 1880, named Nunawading North, built on Witt's Heatherdale property. The school had a life of nine years when pupils were transferred to Mitcham primary school. The site became the Mitcham Special School (1962) and later the Heatherwood school. A larger site was acquired for a new Heatherdale school (1963 - 1993).
Heatherdale has a small neighbourhood shopping centre in Maroondah Highway immediately west of Heatherdale Road, and the Heatherdale reserve and bowling club with adjoining tennis courts.
