Deep Dive

The History and Founding of Joondanna

The area’s origins date back to 1840 when the land was first granted to T. R. C. Walters. However, it wasn’t until after the conclusion of World War II that significant development began to take shape. The subdivision of Joondanna was initiated in 1939, and it was during the late 1940s and early 1950s that the suburb experienced a remarkable surge in growth. This period was marked by rapid urbanization, leading to a situation by 1958 where scarcely any vacant land remained available within the area.A significant addition to the suburb’s architectural landscape was the construction of St Denis church in 1967. Designed by Ernest Rossen, with interior work done by Iris Rossen, this church stands as an exceptional representation of late Twentieth Century architectural design, characterized by its distinct detached sculptural forms and innovative internal lighting.
