The name of the place is Maidstone Islamic Centre (MIC) commonly known as Maidstone Mosque by worshipers. The mosque management committee thought that the name would reflect the shared legacy of the Australian society and the main community behind the construction of the mosque, the Australian Croatian Muslim Community.

The first mosque on this site was opened for worship between 1973 to 1983.  It was a assembly hall for Australian Salvation Army. The project was initiated and largely funded by the Croatian Muslim Community. Many other local Muslim members, irrespective of their ethnic background, greatly contributed towards the construction and building costs of the mosque. The mosque congregation is of diverse mixed ethnic origin.
