Official Boundaries[edit]

Hi, What are the official boundaries of Ripponlea? I question whether or not the Top Shop on the corner of Glen Eira Road and Hotham Street are part of Ripponlea? If so, would streets like Attley, Bailey, Myrtle, Acacia and Gordon also be in Ripponlea? If not (I think that is the answer), then places like Caulfield Grammar and the Top Shop, Attley, Bailey and Myrtle Streets would be in East St Kilda, whereas Solomon's Kosher Butchers, BBE Mechanics, Gordon and Acacia Streets would be in Elsternwick. Because Ripponlea Primary School on Carrington Grove is definitely in East St Kilda. Also, Ripponlea would have two postcodes: 3183 above Glen Eira Road and 3185 below Glen Eira Road. Because Oak St is in Ripponlea and its postcode is 3183. St Petersburg Restaurant is in Ripponlea and is 3183. 01:56, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

In answer - Brighton Road, Hotham Road and Elm Grove/Albion Street are the boundaries. You're correct regarding the streets and the primary school - they are in St Kilda East (as is the primary school) and Elsternwick respectively. Ripponlea is entirely within 3185 (see Australia Post's postcode tool, and also the Melway which marks the postcode boundary onmap 67 around D1-E1). Orderinchaos 02:06, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
