Ulimaroa and ANZCA House

Building Description

The house was built in 1889-90, a time when St Kilda Road was a tree-lined boulevard dotted with large private residences. It remained a family home until 1960 and today is one of only five former stately homes remaining along St Kilda Road.

Ulimaroa currently houses the ANZCA Library, Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History and the Fellows room. The building is linked to the more modern ANZCA House via a seamless extension connecting the two buildings.

The completion of ANZCA House in 2001 underscored the rapid development and expansion of the specialty of anaesthesia since first becoming a faculty of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 1952 to a college in its own right in 1992.
