Suburb Overview

Clifton Hill is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 4 km north-east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the City of Yarra. At the 2011 Census, Clifton Hill had a population of 5,790.

Described in the 1880s as the "Toorak of Collingwood", Clifton Hill fell out of favour, along with much of inner Melbourne by the mid 20th century. Later becoming a centre of Melbourne's bohemianism, the suburb has undergone rapid gentrification in recent years, and is now considered one of Melbourne's most liveable suburbs.

Clifton Hill is located immediately adjacent to Fitzroy North, with which it shares the same postcode. The border between Clifton Hill and Fitzroy North is Queens Parade and Smith Street. Merri Creek defines the eastern border of Clifton Hill.

In the mid-1850s, East Collingwood was known as an insanitary flood-prone polluted flat. It was 'Melbourne's multi-problem suburb', described as "An ideal case study in the origins of pollution. The residents were soon wading in own muck... Collingwood became a cesspool for refuse." The area was "akin to a swamp and the few who ventured forth were looked upon after their return as people who had performed a somewhat perilous journey."

The municipality of East Collingwood was proclaimed on 24 April 1855 by Collingwood's businessmen to improve the district, initially only including the areas which would later be known as Collingwood and Abbotsford. The municipality was known as East Collingwood, as, at the time, the term 'Collingwood' included what is now known as Fitzroy, then a ward of the City of Melbourne and later becoming the City of Fitzroy.

In the 1850s, the land that would become Clifton Hill was crown land, but unincorporated, serviced by unsurveyed tracks leading to Northcote and bounded by the surveyed roads of Heidelberg Road and Hoddle Street, which provided access to private quarries in the area, which is between Ramsden and Roseneath Streets, Clifton Hill now days, as well as the City of Melbourne quarry, located between Yambla Street and the Merri Creek.

Within a few months, the East Collingwood Local Committee sought permission for East Collingwood to annex what is now Clifton Hill. This annexation was controversial. Henry Groom, a City of Melbourne Councillor, declared, not surprisingly, "The freeholders of Clifton Hill have no desire to depreciate the value of their property by suffering it to be annexed to a swamp which to drain itself would drain our resources."

East Collingwood was successful in its acquisition of Clifton Hill, and also unsuccessfully pursued the annexation of Studley Park. This formed the City of Collingwood, which remained essentially intact until it was amalgamated, along with the City of Fitzroy and the City of Richmond, into the City of Yarra in 1994.

While much of Richmond, Fitzroy and Collingwood had been laid out by speculators anxious to increase profits, Clifton Hill was a professionally laid out suburb. Clement Hodgkinson, as Victorian Assistant-Commissioner of Crown Lands and Survey, was responsible for the government subdivisions of Carlton, North Carlton, North Fitzroy and Clifton Hill, Hotham Hill, South and North Parkville. Under his supervision, suburban planning employed the grid system used by Robert Hoddle, Hodgkinson's predecessor.

Consequently, Smith, Wellington and Hoddle Streets were extended north to connect with Heidelberg Road, and planning of Clifton Hill proceeded on a more organised basis than that of the remainder of the municipality, including reservation of land for public recreation purposes.

During the following years, disputes arose as competing interests proposed different locations and routes for infrastructure to be constructed through the municipality, such an major roads and bridges. The North, South,
