Croydon is a suburb in outer Melbourne, Victoria. It is located within the Local Government Area of the city of Maroondah. The area today known as Croydon was first settled by Europeans in the 1840s, where it was used for farming and grazing. It was once known as White Flat, but it was later renamed after Croydon, England, the hometown of a later settler. By the 1870s much of the land had been split into parcels and sold, and a settlement was quickly growing; the area was primarily occupied by beef and dairy farms, as well as sheep stations, although orchards later became a prevalent part of the town’s exports. A post office opened in 1883 and the town was officially gazetted as a town a few decades later in 1912.

Croydon is 28km northeast of Melbourne’s Central Business District, meaning residents of Croydon are able to enjoy a lifestyle outside of the bustle of the city centre without sacrificing the conveniences of easy access to the amenities of the city proper. Croydon’s commerce and hospitality industries focus on Main Street, which is full of restaurants and shops as well as the Croydon Market Complex. The municipality has excellent amenities ranging from gyms to swimming pools; there is also an arts centre on Hull Road and a library on Civic Drive. In conclusion, Croydon is a growing suburb which strikes an excellent balance between city life and its individual character, making it a very good place to own property.
