Welcome to Kensington, Victoria from the local residents’ action group.
Kensington is a great little 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!
Our suburb is well serviced by public transport, with four railway stations (Kensington, South Kensington, Macaulay and Newmarket) plus the 402 bus (Footscray-East Melbourne route) along Macaulay and Kensington roads, the and the 57 tram along Racecourse Road from Elizabeth Street in the city
You will find that people are friendly and public-spirited. Shopkeepers will get to know you and soon you will be greeted by, and be greeting, people on the street. There are also many groups, clubs, activities and public services here, as you will see from the Community Services Guide.
The Kensington Association is a non-profit resident action group consisting of people just like you – residents and traders who are committed to the future of our community. Our aim is to maintain and develop our suburb’s unique character and enhance of amenity of Kensington for the benefit of all residents.
You are also most welcome to attend our meetings. They are held at 7:30pm on the first Monday of each month (except November and January) at the Kensington Town Hall, Bellair Street.
We invite residents, new and old, as well as supporters to join our Association.
