Facts About South Melbourne
Two hundred years ago, South Melbourne was largely swampland and formed a traditional meeting place for native tribes of the Kulin nation. It was settled in the early 1840s but quickly became a slum in the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s. It was not until 1855 that it was declared a municipality of Melbourne, and shortly thereafter, Melbourne’s second railway line was placed directly through the burgeoning township. Like much of Melbourne, in the 1980s an extensive gentrification process began that renovated what was once regarded as a slum town into a heart of industry and the new middle class. It would eventually be combined with the Cities of St Kilda and Port Melbourne to create the City of Port Phillip.
