Developed in the early 1950s, the area was named as a composite of Midland and the former Helena Vale Racecourse.[2] The former racecourse site is now part of Midvale.

Its southern boundary is the Great Eastern Highway, and eastern the Eastern Railway.

A substantial amount of the housing in the suburb is known as State Housing; a significant amount of this housing was redeveloped by the Department of Housing under the "Eastern Horizons New Living Project".[3]
