East Melbourne Group

The East Melbourne Group Inc (Est 1954) is a residents association of East Melbourne and Jolimont, and Melbourne’s oldest residents’ association.

The area of East Melbourne and Jolimont is located to the east of the Melbourne Central Business District. Predominately a residential area, East Melbourne has been identified as having architectural and historic significance and is one of the most intact areas of the 19th century Victorian era.

Parliament House, St Patricks Cathedral, together with Eastern Hill tower, form some of the most prominent landmarks in historic East Melbourne. The heritage listed Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens are located nearby. In addition, East Melbourne is home to the Melbourne Cricket Ground and a number of large hospitals and institutions.

This area was Melbourne’s first suburb. It has one of the highest concentrations of individual historic buildings in the State.

The residents of East Melbourne and Jolimont formed a local association in 1953. Believed to be the oldest residents group in Victoria, it all began when a small group of people joined forces to save the destruction of elm trees in the streets of East Melbourne. The magnificent canopy of elms at the eastern end of George Street remains testament of this early resistance. The Group went on to remain at the forefront of preserving the character, amenity, ambience and architecture of this unique and historic precinct.

Through the efforts of the committee and the sub-committees, the EMG works to preserve, protect and improve:

- East Melbourne’s residential character and amenity
- Heritage qualities and historic buildings
- Boulevards, streets, laneways, streetscapes, views and vistas
- And public parks, gardens, median strips and significant trees.
