History of Chadstone, VIC
Many of the houses in the Chadstone area were built in the postwar period using prefabricated concrete produced at the current site of Holmesglen Institute. The houses tend to be quite small, with two to three bedrooms and large blocks.
It is relatively common for houses to be demolished and larger homes built to take advantage of the block size. This can cause a nuisance for neighbours during the construction period.
Chadstone Post Office opened on 8 April 1957 and Chadstone Centre Post Office opened on 3 October 1960. The Chadstone office closed in 1998.

“Best of both worlds” reviewed by Yum F.
I’ve been living in Chadstone for almost 2 year and we love it! Really is the best of both worlds being a quiet peaceful and friendly area with plenty of parks and open green spaces, but also with all the action at Chadstone shopping centre. Great schools and plenty of good childcare centres all around, also close to Deakin and Monash unis and Holmesglen TAFE. We work in the city which is fine as it’s only 5 minute walk to the station and 30 mins on train to the city, or we can be on the Monash freeway in just a couple of minutes.
