* The former City of Moorabbin incorporated Bentleigh, E Bentleigh, Cheltenham, Clarinda, Heatherton, Highett, McKinnon, Ormond, Moorabbin. When the Vic State Government amalgamated local councils in 1994, the City of Moorabbin was devolved into the new Cities of Glen Eira, Kingston, Bayside, Monash, and its history consigned to the City of Moorabbin Historical Society (CMHS) who operate the Box Cottage Museum.
