Yarra City Council acknowledges the Wurundjeri as the Traditional Owners of this country, pays tribute to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Yarra, and gives respect to the Elders past and present.

Yarra City Council have created 'Pastport Yarra' for the citizens of Yarra and visitors to share our rich local history. PastPort Yarra is a community within the PastPort website hosted at the University of Melbourne.

The City of Yarra has a rich heritage, and Pastport Yarra allows us to capture and share these heritage stories with the rest of the community. City of Yarra is home to some of Melbourne's first suburbs, 19th century shopping strips and old industrial buildings and areas.

PastPort Yarra also allows you to create and follow history walks and explore the area via historical themes.

If you have a story to share, we encourage you to share it on this site. It doesn't have to be well-known historical facts, it can simply be an anecdote of time or moment in the past that you remember. This approach will help us capture those aspects of history which aren't as commonly known. Please remember to credit your photos/films/audios with the source if it is still within copyright.
