The first area, owned by Mr John Gwynne, consisted of 86 allotments, and went to auction on the 3rd of March 1886. The second section, being bordered by Northfields Avenue, Gipps Rd and Murphy's Lane, was auctioned in 47 allotments by Mr William J Gwynne on the 27th of November 1886.
It has an area of bush heritage land on its southern side located in and around Wiseman Park. There are two schools, Gwynneville Public School and Saint Brigid's Primary School. A neighbourhood shopping centre is located at the eastern end of Gipps Road and includes a post office, petrol station and food shops. Also in the area is the Wiseman Park Bowling Club and the Beaton Park Leisure Centre, a major sporting and fitness venue for the city.
