Since 1969 we have, on behalf of local residents, been working to enhance and preserve the character and amenity of the City of Melbourne component of South Yarra. Melbourne South Yarra Residents Group Membership is open to all residents within the postocde 3141 or 3004 precinct of the City of Melbourne.
We aim to hold two General meetings per year and engage with members in various campaigns and consultations as the need arises. Membership can be applied for online.
