Exploring the Industrial Heritage of the City of Kingston en

The City of Kingston administers much of Melbourne’s south-eastern ‘sand belt’. This local government area sweeps along the north-eastern shoreline of Port Phillip through well-known coastal suburbs such as Mentone, Aspendale and Carrum and inland to Moorabbin, Clayton South and Braeside. The region has a rich industrial history with a number of large industrial zones that developed on green field sites after World War Two.

In the post war years, development centred on Moorabbin East where major manufacturing plants were established in Cochranes, Keys and Chesterville Roads. The surrounding areas also experienced a proliferation of light industries during this period.

This tour will introduce a number of sites that inform the industrial heritage of the City of Kingston. As we tour these sites, we will also reflect on the meaning of heritage and the ways in which industrial heritage sites are interpreted.
