History of lilydale

Lilydale, which is located on the Olinda Creek, is often described as the gateway to the Yarra Valley wine-growing area. In fact a profitable wine industry, which took advantage of the rich red volcanic soil in the area, developed around Lilydale in the 19th century. Today this small and charming town is a good starting point for visitors eager to explore the rich vineyards and cellar doors of the Yarra Valley.


Lilydale is located 41 km east of Melbourne via the M3. It lies at the edge of the Yarra Valley at the northern end of the Dandenong Ranges.

Origin of Name

There are three possible explanations for the name. One claims that the Government surveyor, John Hardy, suggested that the town be named Lillydale after his chainman was heard singing a popular song ‘Lilly Dale’. A second one claims that the surveyor saw lilies growing in the creek. The third one argues that the Yarra Valley’s first vines were planted in 1838 at Yering station. The pioneers were William Ryrie, Paul de Castella and Baron de Pury. The name Lilydale was taken from Lilly, the daughter of Paul de Castella, and that council clerks and the local schoolmaster shortened the spelling to Lilydale.

We tender to builders whose reputation, time in business and quality of work has been recommended by building surveyors.
