The Oakleigh Motel in the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Oakleigh was the very first motel ever built in Victoria.  Constructed in 1956, “the Oak” was the official ‘turning point’ for the marathon in the 1956 Olympics, although delays prevented its completion until 1957 when the Olympics so Olympic viewers couldn't actually stay there.
