Collingwood is one of Melbourne’s earliest suburbs. From 1855 until 1994, it was part of the municipality of Collingwood, and is now in the City of Yarra.
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 became an area with lots of small houses interspersed with small businesses and later, large factories.
In recent years many of the factories have been re-developed for residential use.
The area contains a number of important heritage buildings and precincts.
