Although not open to the public the Old Colonists Association is a great spot to take in some of the history of Melbourne.
The Old Colonists Association was founded in part by George Coppin who was a business man, philanthropist, member of parliament, founder of Sorrentoand many other notable institutions can be traced back to Mr Coppin.
He founded Old Colonists Association as a retirement home for the acting fraternity and the first cottages on the estate are still called "Founders Cottages" and can be viewed from Rushall Crescent, which adjoins the estate. A short walk along Coppin Avenue passes the oldest of the cottages, which date from 1869.
If you are interested in a guided tour of the estate, contact details below.
20 Rushall Crescent, Fitzroy North 3068
Close to Queens Parade where there is a tram to/from city
