Protecting and enhancing the amenity of Kensington for all residents


Welcome to Kensington, Victoria from the local residents’ action group.

The Association was established by a group of residents in 1997 and followed on the proud traditions of previous Kensington action groups such as the Flemington/Kensington Progress Association and the Kensington Social Action Group.

Our members are Kensington residents and business people who are committed to a bright future for our community. We are not-for-profit, supported by member fees, your valuable donations and community grants. The association is coordinated by a volunteer Steering Committee elected each August at our Annual General Meeting.


We monitor building developments and other proposals, and if they are deemed inappropriate, we assist in mobilising resources against them.


We seek to protect the amenity of Kensington through monitoring processes, preserving streetscapes and attempting to reduce the volume of traffic on our streets.


We undertake community-building and environmental projects and work with councils to enhance the life of our community and suburb.

Discover Our Suburb

Kensington is a great suburb and we are proud of it. Many people comment on the village-like atmosphere. The Macaulay Road – Bellair Street shopping precinct is a hive of activity and we suggest you support local businesses – if you don’t use it, you lose it.   Our café strip is famous, and occasionally, we even see tourist buses come through!
