Victoria Street originally ran from Liverpool to Canterbury Road. The Canterbury Road end has been blocked off.  Subdivisions have occurred from the 1880’s through to 1928 and there are buildings from these years still in Victoria Street. There are now high rise units, the police station and Fire Station, Yeo Park & Amman Park, Trinity Grammar School and little Yeo Park Primary School, Interwar flats and units from the 1960’s, 70’s, & 80’s. There are cottages and huge heritage listed mansions It is a street well worth exploring not only for the leadlight that still exists.

Victoria Street

No 2 is a Federation house with a great front door entrance set of the front door panel, sidelights and fanlight. They are beautiful examples of Federation leadlight.
