Event description

Description

Ulimaroa is a late Victorian Italianate building, originally intended as a family home. Its name is derived from an incorrectly recorded Māori word by Cook and Banks as they explored New Zealand. The first owner, Rev. Edwin Iredale Watkin, never lived in the house. Soon after completion he leased it to Mr John Traill, managing director of the Huddart Parker and Co shipping company. In 1890, Traill purchased the home from Watkin and it remained in the family until 1960. Over its lifetime, Ulimaroa has been a family home, a doctor's surgery and the headquarters for a national company. It was once stripped of many of its heritage features, only to have them later restored. It has been greatly altered and transformed but still stands as a beautifully intact example of Melbourne’s boom time architecture. Ulimaroa now contains the ‘knowledge centre’ for the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, consisting of the library, a fellows' meeting area and the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History.
