Life is an adventure.
Event:
World Heritage Week in Fitzroy
Happy Birthday House is a day of celebration of Fitzroy's historical houses (and other buildings) and their exciting histories.

Being Melbourne's first and oldest suburb, many homes are now 150 years old or more!

Presented by Fitzroy Residents Association, Happy Birthday House is a great opportunity for our valuable history to be shared with others.

In conjunction with World Heritage Week, a selection of houses will be participating in Fitzroy's 3rd year Happy Birthday House (HBH) event. These historic houses and other buildings will be easily identified by a HBH balloon that will also display historical information researched by the owners or occupants of that property.
