Located 18km north east from the Melbourne CBD Montmorency is home to approximately 9000 residents who enjoy the village like lifestyle of Were street with its trademark windmill at the top of the street. Nicknamed Monty by the locals, Montmorency received its name from the original farmland property called The Montmorency Estate. Residential houses, Montmorency Primary School, and the Post Office were built in the 1920’s amongst orchards, dairy and poultry farms. It was in the 1950’s that Montmorency started to develop with shops and factories being built with the population tripling from the 1920’s. Today there are still a lot of post war homes standing in Monty.
