Originally called Batmania after its founder John Batman in 1835, Melbourne was renamed in honour of Viscount Melbourne, the British Prime Minister of the day. Soon to celebrate its bicentenary, Melbourne is now the second largest city in both Australia and Oceania and home to nearly five million people from 180 countries making it a multi-cultural smorgasbord.
Built on the banks of the Yarra River upstream from its mouth with Port Philip Bay, Melbourne has always been a meeting ground for its original inhabitants, the Wurundjeri, Boonwurrung and Wathaurong people of the Kulin nation. Made rich by the gold rush of the 1850s, the city began its iconic relationship with architecture which extends to this day. Melbourne’s oldest building is the St James’ Old Anglican Cathedral on Batman St, built four years after the city’s founding and still serving worshippers. Other significant cathedrals in the city include St Patrick’s Catholic Cathedral in East Melbourne, the largest church building in Australia, and St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral on the corner of Swanston St and Flinders St, the site of the first public Christian service in Melbourne.
Famous for its medical research, Melbourne hosts a number of world class hospitals including The Royal Melbourne Hospital, The Royal Women’s Hospital, The Royal Children’s Hospital and Melbourne Private Hospital all in Parkville, as well as St Vincent’s Public Hospital in Fitzroy, St Vincent’s Private Hospital and the Epworth Freemasons Hospital in East Melbourne, and the Epworth Private Hospital in Bridge Rd, Richmond.
