Lyndon Lodge, Auburn, was a hostel run by the Salvation Army to provide 'aftercare' for boys leaving the Bayswater Boys' Homes.
Lyndon Lodge was situated at 27 Auburn Road, Auburn.
The son of Howard Broadstock, who managed Lyndon Lodge from 1958 to 1964, reminisced about his time living there:
What a place for a kid to grow up in; a house that looked like something from a horror movie with turrets and gargoyles, lots of space to run around in, a tennis court, a gymnasium, table tennis and billiards - what more could a young family ask for! And we lived on one of the richest streets in Melbourne!
