Local Guide

Fairfield is a cultural and recreational fusion favoured for its gourmet focus on the Station Street shopping strip. Residents love the friendly atmosphere, fabulous primary schools, sporting facilities and easy access to transport including Fairfield station, with a train ride to Flinders Street taking just 17 minutes. Fairfield features pretty pockets of period homes interspersed with contemporary townhouses and apartments. There are plenty of big, double-fronted blocks for families, charming terraces, easy-upkeep options and a select few sprawling properties gracing the banks of the Yarra River.





History

A small yet particularly desirable slice of north eastern Melbourne, Fairfield’s beginnings are recorded by the opening of its post office in 1887. Today, historic buildings including the 1888 Grandview Hotel rub shoulders with period homes and more contemporary developments. The iconic Fairfield Park Boathouse was opened in 1908, and boating carnivals were a common feature of Fairfield life until the 1950s. Today, bustling Station Street is Fairfield’s commercial heart and features a diverse mix of cafes, bars, restaurants and specialty shops.
