Built in 1959 by the landowners Clarence George and Edna May Cornford.
The Cornfords had a peach orchid on the site until they subdivided the land. The avenue was named "Daydawn" because Edna Cornford (nee Williams) parents when first married moved to a goldmine town in WA. The town was called "Daydawn". It does not exist today but I beleive it was located near at remote town called "Cue". Edna's parents, William and Emily Williams built a house at the end of Fairfax road around 1908 it was also called Daydawn
