Point of Interest Details

A residential precinct developed around Little Lonsdale Street during the late 1840s and early 1850s, on what was then the north-eastern edge of Melbourne. From 1987-88 it was the focus of an ambitious urban archaeology project. Found artefacts reveal a socially diverse neighbourhood. On your left you will pass Bennetts Lane, site of the famous jazz club (recently closed; and soon to be re-open at a new location). On your right you can see a cluster of bluestone buildings: the Wesley Church and Wesley Mission Victoria complex. The oldest buildings date from 1858-59
