Port Phillip Heritage Centre

Our Heritage Centre is a place for connecting with our local history and discovering the objects and stories that make up the cultural heritage of the City of Port Phillip.
  • From 12 midday Tuesday 22 September to 6 pm Sunday 24 October, the City of Port Phillip will enter into the Election Period for the Council Elections.

    You can still contact us during this period and we’ll resume regular operation on Monday 26 October.
