Collingwood Heritage Walk - Cya On The Road

Home to the Wurrundjeri people, Collingwood was first subdivided into 25 acre lots in land sales in 1838-39. It grew rapidly in the 1850s with the gold rushes and become an area with lots of small houses interspersed with small businesses and later large factories.

Collingwood is also where the Aussie retail giant Coles was born 100+ years ago in 1914!

In recent years many of the factories have been re-developed for residential use. The area still contains a number of important heritage buildings and precincts.

This heritage walk takes you on a tour of places that tell the story of Collingwood. Enjoy!

This tour is based on Yarra City Council's data.
