Case study - Cremorne Digital Hub

From the early 1900s to the 1980s, Cremorne was a bustling manufacturing centre better known for its garment factories and massive Rosella food preserving complex than for its pioneering use of technology.

Today, this inner-Melbourne pocket nestled between Richmond and the Yarra River is a driving force behind Victoria’s tech and creative sector.

Estimated to contribute over $4 billion annually to the Victorian economy, Cremorne is now a thriving precinct and home to 2,000 residents, 700 businesses and more than 10,000 workers.

Frequently referred to as Victoria’s own Silicon Valley, Cremorne also houses four of Victoria’s tech companies that have attained billion-dollar valuation, including MYOB, REA Group, Carsales and SEEK.

The Victorian Government is investing $12 million to establish the Digital Hub and accelerate Cremorne’s development as a global innovation and technology precinct.

The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions recently ran an Expressions of Interest (EOI) process for parties interested in establishing and operating the Cremorne Digital Hub.

This exciting project will help to turn Cremorne into focal point for creative and digital enterprises and startups, and a vibrant precinct in which to live and work.
