The Maylands Historical and Peninsula Association Inc. invites you to explore our history of Maylands, please enjoy.
The Suburb of Maylands developed in two distinct time periods.
1830s to 1900s
Joseph Hardey and family were well established, not only as farmers, but also as devout and active leaders of the Methodist Church. They eventually owned all of the land on the Peninsula.
1900s to the Present
Maylands developed as a family area from the beginning, with land being cheap for housing. Shops were built in Railway Terrace (renamed Whatley Crescent) from 1898, later extending into Eighth Avenue and Guildford Road.
There were three early hotels, those being the Central Hotel 1902, the Peninsula hotel 1906 and Hoffmans Hotel which used to be on the corner of Guildford road and Rowlands Street.
The Peninsula and later Maylands initially came under the local Government of Perth Road Board and was later renamed the City of Stirling. In 1998 the suburb was transferred to Bayswater City Council with some adjustment to boundaries.
