About Oakleigh

Oakleigh is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. As part of Melbourne's 1950s eastward growth, Oakleigh, once a sizable separate city, was included in the metropolis. It originally had a distinct municipality in the former City of Oakleigh, a sizable historic Central Business District, and its own suburbs. Because of the enormous inflow of Greek immigrants into Australia in the middle of the 20th century, the region has a long history of having a significant Greek cultural influence.

One-fourth of residents of the suburb speak only Greek at home. Although the meaning of the name "Oakleigh" is unknown, there are three primary ideas among local historians as to where it came from: from the she-oaks that grew close to Scotchmans Creek; from "Oakleigh Park," a mansion close to Malvern Hills in England; or from Mrs Oakley, a pioneer. As part of the Melbourne 2030 planning strategy, Oakleigh was designated as a Major Activity Center. Hundreds and thousands of students flock to this locality every year, making it a popular educational destination in the country.
