Discover South Melbourne

South Melbourne originated in 1855 and was one of Melbourne's first shopping strips. Originally known as Emerald Hill, because the hill on which the town hall now stands was a green island surrounded by swamps.

The name change was due to the fact that the attachment to Melbourne gave the area international recognition and this was required to precure loans from London to develop infrastructure.

Today the historic characteristics are still evident and the town has evolved into a vibrant shopping and business centre with a friendly village atmosphere.

Melbourne's Original Tradition Shopping Strip

There are few places that offer unique stores, friendly service and a relaxed village atmosphere.

South Melbourne is only 5 minutes from the CBD and is one of Melbourne's premier shopping precincts exuding tradition, charm and style.

With it's historic architecture and cobbled laneways, it is a perfect setting for an eclectic fusion of foods, fashion, designer home and gift wares, plus you can pamper yourself at one of the many beauty salons and day spas, plus there is so much more to discover!

The South Melbourne Business Association established in 2003, is a non - profit organisation overseen by local business people who have a business in the precinct and are passionate about the area. The Association, supported by the City of Port Phillip, plays a key role in creating and implementing strategies to improve and promote the area.
