Our story

Eureka Mums was established in Ballarat in February 2014, following in the footsteps of Geelong Mums and St Kilda Mums.

Eureka Mums was established by founder Erin Malone (photographed here by Peter Kervarec) in February 2014, following in the footsteps of Geelong Mums, and with the full support and backing of St Kilda Mums in Melbourne.

In June 2015 we moved into our warehouse in Sebastopol. Entirely volunteer run for the first two years, in May 2016 we saw long time volunteer Trinsa Lewis appointed to the role of Operations Manager, thanks to a generous grant from The RE Ross Trust.

Eureka Mums is a branch of St Kilda Mums, operating under its legal entity and governance structure.
