Gardenvale is 12 km from Melbourne CBD via Nepean Highway, which enters the city as St Kilda Road. North Road connects the suburb with Monash University at Clayton, Oakleigh and Mulgrave.
Prior to subdivision in 1908, the area was a paddock owned by the Lemprière family, and was in use as a polo ground. The Lemprières were a prominent Caulfield family with several members serving on the Caulfield Council. The railway station, built in 1907, was named Garden Vale - the origins of the name are unknown, but it is possibly due to market gardens in the surrounding countryside.
The suburb is a mostly residential area with a strip shopping centre on Gardenvale Road. The suburb is bounded by Nepean Highway to the west, Elster Avenue to the north, Kooyong Road to the east and North Road to the south, and the Elster Creek flows through the suburb before entering the Elwood Canal.
