I saw these beautiful homes on my walk around East Melbourne. This suburb is just outside the CBD.

This house was the home of Peter Lalor, one of the leaders of the Eureka Stockade in 1854. After the stockade he became a Member of Parliament and moved to this house.

This row of terraces actually contains four homes but it looks like there are two. It’s only when you look closely at the front door that you realise there are two doors on the right and two on the left.

This was the home of Sir John Monash, a great Australian military commander in World War 1.
