Point Ormond on the Elwood foreshore is a local landmark in the City of Port Phillip. It has a varied and fascinating history. Prior to colonisation the local indigenous population, the Bunurong, used Point Ormond as a site for social gatherings. In 1840 Point Ormond became the unlikely site of St. Kilda’s first graveyard and Victoria’s first quarantine station. In the early 1860s an abattoir was built in the vicinity and in the 1890s the point was mined for coal by two remarkable women under the direction of a spirit called ‘Pat’.
