Bourke Street

Bourke Street is named for Sir Richard Bourke, the Governor of New South Wales (and thus, of Melbourne as well) in 1837 during the drafting of the Hoddle Grid. 

The Hoddle Grid is the layout of the streets in the centre of the central business district of Melbourne. Named after its designer,Robert Hoddle, the grid was laid out in 1837, and later extended. It covers the area from Flinders Street to Queen Victoria Market, and from Spencer Street to Spring Street.
