Clarinda was once a coastal heathland, and John O'Shannessy initially occupied it in the early 1840s. John O’Shannessy acquired a squatting license encompassing a 40,000-acre block surrounding suburbs known today as Clayton South, Dingley and Heatherton. In 1846, JohnO’Shannessy passed his squatting license to Richard King and John. This led to a total transformation of Clarinda. In May 1905, Brighton council received an offer from Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works that it was ready to lay an extension of Glenhuntly road. Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works was also prepared to lay water main into the suburb with the intention of opening the little-populated localities.
In June 1905, Moorabbin Council requested for approximations to form and gravel twenty chains of Clarinda road from Bunny road. In the edition of Brighton Southern Cross newspaper in July 1907 made an advertisement from a florist known as Curtis. The advertisement was made to seek for an employee to work in Clarinda Road, Bald Hills. The suburb was originally referred to as Bald Hills. It was later renamed because they were many places named the same. It was changed to Bayview and later to Clarinda. In April 1908, Moorabbin council held a meeting and voted to support the construction of Clarinda road. Clarinda road was the only through road between Bald Hills and Heatherton. The road was proposed to source gravel for the construction of nearby Robertson’s Estate. In July the same year, Moorabbin council agreed with the engineer’s report recommending that Clarinda road be gravelled for four chains. They also concurred that the area should be left alone for a while.
On 13th September 1911, a post office was opened in the suburb which was later closed in 1971. It was then reopened in 1984 after developments were made in the suburb. Today, Clarinda is a multicultural suburb with many existing communities from Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Vietnam, India and Greece.
