Sutherland Homes established the Diamond Valley Youth Hostel in 1979. It offered accommodation for young people making the transition from Sutherland Homes for Children into the world outside. The Hostel moved to Greensborough in 1986, and the former hostel was remodelled as a residential unit.

Sutherland Homes established the Diamond Valley Youth Hostel in 1979 in response to newly forming policies for de-institutionalisation and the involvement of family in the care of children and young people.

Sutherland Homes had long recognised the need for accommodation for young people making the transition from Sutherland into the world outside.

The Hostel moved from Diamond Creek to Greensborough in 1986, and the former hostel was remodelled as a residential unit.
