Richmond is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Yarra. At the 2006 Census, Richmond had a population of 22,475.
Richmond has three of the 82 designated Major Activity Centres in the Melbourne 2030 Metropolitan Strategy - the commercial strips of Victoria Street, Bridge Road and Swan Street.
The diverse suburb has been the subject of gentrification since the early 1990s and now contains an eclectic mix of expensively converted warehouse residences, public housing high-rise flats and Victorian-era terrace houses, along with a lively retail sector and a shrinking industrial and manufacturing base. Richmond has a vibrant and popular Little Saigon area along Victoria Street. Richmond was home to the Nine Network studios, under the callsign of GTV-9, until the studios moved to Docklands in 2011. Dimmey's is long associated with Richmond, although it is located in the neighbouring suburb of Cremorne. The suburb is well known for its textile industry history and popular factory outlets centred along Bridge Road remain an attraction to the area.
Richmond was named after Richmond Hill, London, with its outlook of the river bend, however the waterfront area was later named Cremorne.
Richmond is home to the four houses being used on the 2011 edition of The Block airing on Channel 9 later this year.
