Find out about Cremorne Self Storage. Cremorne is a small inner suburb of Melbourne, 2 km south-east of the CBD and 22.6 km away from where City West Storage is located. At the 2011 Census it had a population of 1,564. It is bounded by the Yarra River, Punt Road, Swan and Church Streets, and divided down the middle by the railway to South Yarra. Covering only about a square kilometre until 1999 Cremorne existed only as a locality in the larger suburb of Richmond. Cremorne's charm is in its rather chaotic mix of uses and the unique character resulting from being 'walled in' by main roads and railways on all sides. There are industrial icons such as Bryant and May and Rosella factories, and the Nylex Clock, side by side with Victorian cottages, modern townhouses, offices and light industries.
Cremorne takes its name from the Cremorne Gardens, an amusement park which occupied a riverfront location in the western half of Cremorne for a period in the mid 19th century.

From December 1859 until about 1864, there was a railway station called Cremorner, just north of Balmain Street, on the Melbourne and Suburban Railway Company's line to Windsor. The station provided access to the adjacent Cremorne Gardens. The Windsor line has since been extended as far as Sandringham. The junction of the two busiest groups of railway lines in Melbourne is in Cremorne.

Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the Australian state of Victoria and is the second biggest city in Australia - after Sydney.
The name "Melbourne" refers to the area that spans 9,900 km2. This comprises the broader metropolitan area, as well as being the common name for the Central Business District (CBD). The City of Melbourne is located on Port Phillip Bay and expands into the hinterlands towards the Dandenong and Macedon mountain ranges, the Mornington Peninsula and the Yarra Valley.
Melbourne consists of a total of 31 ‘municipalities’, commonly known as councils or shires that are tasked with governing the local areas they are responsible for. It has a population of 4,529,500 as of 2015, and its inhabitants are called “Melburnians”.
Melbourne was founded by free settlers from the British Crown colony (what we now know as England) on 30 August 1835. Australia was called ‘Van Diemen’s Land’ and the state of Victoria did not exist at the time - Melbourne was in the colony of New South Wales and was named by its Governor, Sir Richard Bourke in honour of then British Prime Minister William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne.
It was officially declared a city by Queen Victoria, whom Lord Melbourne was close to, in 1847. In 1851, it became the capital of the newly founded colony of Victoria.
In the 1850’s, during the great Victoria Gold Rush, Melbourne was transformed into one of the world's largest and wealthiest cities.
Melbourne rates highly in education, entertainment, health care, research and development, tourism and sport. It has been voted the World’s most liveable city for six years in a row up until 2016.
