The changing face of Moonee Ponds

From our earliest beginnings with the first Wurundjeri people, to early pastoral settlements, and later home of Barry Humphries fond memories; Moonee Ponds 3039, has evolved into to the progressive community we see today.

We are very proud the many historic buildings, which give our Precinct its character, have been maintained and updated. The landmark, Clock Tower links us to our heritage and is now the heart of the very strong arts culture here in Moonee Ponds.

Combining the old with the new, Puckle Street, named for the first Vicar of Moonee Ponds, Mr. Puckle, has always been one of Melbourne’s most beloved byways. Crowned by ‘the junction’, Puckle St. has been able to preserve its quaint federation façades, and yet be home to the latest styles and trends as it keeps moving forwards.

Moonee Ponds Precinct has expanded to grow into one of the most vibrant suburban centres. We welcome the huge number of visitors who come to enjoy our Precinct, and encourage the many new businesses taking advantage of the exciting opportunities available.

We look forward to seeing the new developments over the coming years.
