History of South Melbourne
South Melbourne, between South Bank of the Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay, originated at the elevated area first known as Emerald Hill, 2 km south of central Melbourne.
Emerald Hill, an old volcanic outcrop, stood out from the surrounding swampland and had greener vegetation. Its elevation above the Yarra delta attracted the initial European settlement. During summer, the swampland dried out and it could be used for recreation or military training.
Settlement south of the Yarra River was focused on Sandridge (Port Melbourne), which was linked to Melbourne by a track from a pier at Sandridge beach. Land sales in today’s South Melbourne were few during the 1840s, but in 1852 a survey of Emerald Hill resulted in the auction of subdivided lots. Grants of land were made to the Anglican, Catholic, Presbyterian and Wesleyan churches, and the pick of the blocks was given to the Melbourne Protestant Orphan Asylum. Settlement of Emerald Hill happened quickly and within two years its residents were complaining that the Melbourne City Council was not giving them value for their rates. On 26 May 1855, Emerald Hill was proclaimed a separate borough.
South Melbourne Drafting Specialist
Truly, South Melbourne is a place where you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city, which is why RFT Solutions is as proud of this place as you are!
RFT Solutions provides a design and drafting service for South Melbourne home extensions and renovations. We obtain building cost estimates, all the permits required, then tender, assess and negotiate builders quotes. We tender to builders whose reputation, time in business and quality of work has been recommended by building surveyors. Building surveyors issue the building permit and conduct inspections during construction. They are the best qualified to judge a builders quality of work rather than friends or neighbours.
