Extending from Koonung Creek at Box Hill North to Highbury Rd, Burwood,
Station St is not a long thoroughfare but it contains a fascinating history.
The first electric tramway in the southern hemisphere was built in Station St
in the late 19th century, Gough Whitlam's mother Martha lived there, the
world-renowned actress Sarah Bernhardt visited in 1891, the railway level
crossing was a contentious issue for more than 70 years and a school with a
difference was relocated there in 1930. These are some of the many aspects
of life in Station St discussed by author Marc Fiddian, a one-time resident of
one of the streets off Station St.
