Victoria Square was designed as an ‘up-market’ residential area complete with a recreation park in the middle. The houses are substantial and there is a distinct feel of affluence. It was subdivided in its present form in 1876 and many of the buildings date from the 1890’s. There is quite a diversity in the age and architectural styles but the large recreation reserve and the abundance of trees creates a distinct feel to the precinct.
