The wealthiest suburb in nineteenth-century Melbourne, ‘Aristocratic St Kilda’ became known Australia-wide as a bastion of privilege and power. Join us as Carmel McKenzie, author of St Kilda 1841-1900 Movers and Shakers and Money-makers, presents a vivid account of the rise and fall of the merchants, speculators, squatters and others of their ilk who imprinted their aspirations and values on St Kilda, and discover how nineteenth-century St Kilda reflected–and affected–the social, political and economic history of Victoria.

Carmel has also recently won the Victorian Community History Awards with this book. According to the Royal Historical Society it is "social history at its very best, and a worthy winner of the 2023 Victorian Premier’s History Award." '
