Hughesdale is located 14 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. Just 2square kilometres in size, it is the smallest suburb in the City of Monash. Poath Road borders Hughesdale to the west, Dandenong Road to the north, Warrigal Road to the east and North Road to the south. It is named after James Vincent Hughes, former mayor of City of Oakleigh who lobbied heavily for a new station for the area in the mid-1920s.
Hughesdale began, not as a Melbourne suburb, but as a suburban area of Oakleigh along the railway line between itself and Murrumbeena. In the 1880s, due to the presence of the railway the stretch of land attracted some professionals who established substantial homes on large estates. Many of its earliest homes are part of Oakleigh and Murrumbeena's early history. The original township was laid out around Poath Road with small lanes, some cobbled in bluestone.
