Hurstbridge is bounded by the localities of Nutfield and Cottles Bridge in the north, the locality of Panton Hill in the east, the localities of Kangaroo Ground and Wattle Glen in the south, and the locality of Diamond Creek, Broad Gully Road and the localities of Yarrambat and Doreen in the west.

Cornelius Haley, a grazier, founded Hurstbridge in 1842. Upper Diamond Creek, or Allwood, was the name given to the area after the homestead established on Haley’s land. In 1924, the town was renamed. The Hurst family gave the town its current name. Henry Hurst began working for Haley in 1857, and was soon joined by his father, mother, and siblings. In 1858, the Hursts took over from Haley and built the first log bridge across Diamond Creek, upstream from the current Monash Bridge. Robert Bourke, a bushranger, fatally injured Henry Hurst in 1866. The latter was apprehended and bound to a wagon wheel underneath a tree (now known as Bourke’s Tree) before troopers from Queenstown arrived. Bourke was tried for the murder and found guilty, and he was later hanged. 

For several years, the area was known for its orchards and nurseries, and in 1912, a railway line was built from Hurstbridge to Melbourne to transport fruit. A settlement began to form near the bridge as a result of the rail link. In 1912, a post office was established, and in 1918, Sir John Monash’s single-lane bridge was completed. Until 1915, the township was known as Hurst’s Bridge, and then Hurst Bridge until about 1954. [number four] In the postwar years, the town continued to develop, and electricity was installed in 1957. 

In the 1960s, the artist Albert Tucker relocated to Hurstbridge, where he lived for many years on a 5-acre (20,000 m2) farm. The natural bushland around his property is depicted in a series of paintings from the period.
