Historical Landmarks in Lynbrook

Lynbrook, a relatively new suburb in Melbourne’s southeast, has a short history compared to some of the older suburbs in the region.

However, there are some sites of interest in and around Lynbrook:

1. Lynbrook Primary School

While Lynbrook itself may not have many historical landmarks, nearby suburbs such as Dandenong, Cranbourne, and Berwick have a rich history and feature several sites of historical significance. These include:

Dandenong Market (established in 1866)
St. John’s Anglican Church in Cranbourne (built in 1865)
