The first post office in Glen Waverley opened on the first of July in the year 1885, namely Black Flat. The location of this post office was towards the southern part of the railway line.

In the year 1921, the name of the post office was changed from Black Flat to Glen Waverley. This name was again changed in the year 1963 to Glen Waverley South. The word “Waverley” had been derived from the name of Edinburgh’s train station, which was named after a novel.

Development:

The town underwent major development in the years from the 1950s to 1970s. This development consisted of some extremely well-managed housing projects; these houses were built keeping in mind the standard of living which prevailed in Glen Waverley. In the year 1971, Hooker Rex inaugurated the opening of the Legend Estate Park.
