Streetscape

In the past Chetwynd Street was predominantly residential street filled with single and two storey Victorian terrace dwellings, two churches, a school and two hotels known as the Queens Arms and the Star of Hotham.

The Chetwynd streetscape today is characterized by a mix of multi-storey blocks of flats, with some modern commercial/industrial buildings, an ambulance depot, and a school.

Only fifty of the one hundred and twenty-nine original Victorian dwellings once here remain, from a comparison between 2021 to an 1895 Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works map.
