Suburb Profiles.

Beaconsfield/White Gum Valley.

Beaconsfield the suburb, was named after a property known as "Beaconsfield" which was located in the area in the 1880s with the name officially adopted by the Post Office on the 1st August, 1894.

The common white gum of the Darling Range did not grow in the area, although Maiden Gums (salmon white gums) were identified by the first settlers. The older developed areas to the west of the suburbs today still include historic homes of all shapes, sizes and methods of construction.

The development of land to the eastern end of the suburbs post World War II included homes for many newly arrived migrants which have added a unique and rich flavor to the communities.
