From Separation or Dennis Streets to Dundas Street was formally known as Plenty Road.

High Street, along with Hoddle Street, Punt Road and Barkly Street together form the 'Hoddle Line'. This was the north-south axis drawn by Robert Hoddle when surveying Greater Melbourne and Victoria. It was exactly two miles east of Batman's Hill. All roads were measured from this line.
