Evolving Port

Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend continue to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new forms of housing take their place. Port Houses records some of these changes.

73 Heath St, Port Melbourne

February 2019

The house at 73 Heath St has been demolished. Gone for now - but not for long as it will be re-constructed.


It was found that the hipped-roof front section was in such poor structural condition it could not be brought up to modern standards to meet building regulations and energy requirements.  Port Phillip Council building surveyors supported the demolition.

The cottage, with its slate roof and chimney will be reinstated, along with its double-hung windows. A more street sympathetic fence will enable a two way interaction between the house and the street.
