One of the few remaining Victorian era homes on St Kilda Road, Ulimaroa is now surrounded by buildings of glass and concrete. It stands on the traditional estate of the Yalikut Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group. Long before it was built, the land was used for living, food and medicine, and home to many.
Ulimaroa is home to the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, and 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 an extension connecting the two buildings.
The completion of ANZCA House in 2001 underscored the rapid development and expansion of the specialty of anaesthesia in the twentieth century.
Be guided on a tour through the Victorian era home by a representative of the Boon Wurrung Foundation and learn about the way the land was used and how it continues to be used. The event includes Welcome to Country with smoking ceremony and presentation about Boon Wurrung Country.
