The City of Springvale was a Local Government Area located about 30 kilometres (19 mi) southeast of Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria, Australia. The city covered an area of 97.60 square kilometres (37.68 sq mi), and existed from 1857 until 1994.



Springvale was first incorporated as the Dandenong Roads District on 6 February 1857. It became a Shire on 16 May 1873. In May 1920, its coastal section split away to form the Borough of Carrum. The Shire of Dandenong was renamed Shire of Springvale and Noble Park on 31 May 1955. In May 1959, it lost 6.5 square kilometres (2.5 sq mi) of land to the City of Oakleigh. The City of Springvale was proclaimed on 22 April 1961.[2]

On 15 December 1994, along with nearly all other councils in Victoria, the City of Springvale was abolished, and split three ways—Carrum Downs was added to the City of Frankston, while the rest split roughly east-west between the new Cities of Greater Dandenong and Kingston.[3]

Council meetings were held at the City Hall at Springvale Road and Grace Park Avenue, Springvale. It presently serves as city offices for the City of Greater Dandenong.


The City of Springvale was subdivided into four wards in April 1987, each electing three councillors:[2]

  • North Ward
  • Central Ward
  • South Ward
  • West Ward
