Allenby Lodge Young Women's Hostel


The Allenby Lodge Young Women’s Hostel, at 410 Burwood Road, Glenferrie (Hawthorn) was established by the Salvation Army in 1919. It catered for young women from the Army’s Homes at Camberwell and Kew who were unable to return home, or to secure appropriate board and lodging.

According to O’Hanlon, Allenby Lodge was designed ‘to provide a home-like atmosphere’ with ‘clean, healthful comfort, and a strong moral and religious influence’ for ‘young girls in business who are away from their homes’.

O’Hanlon also writes that Allenby Lodge was established ‘only as a small adjunct’ to the larger hostel, Spring House, which was under construction in Melbourne city.
