Local Guide

Vast sporting and recreational amenities, leading schools, a Zone 1 train station, Burgundy Street shopping precinct and state-of-the-art medical facilities are at the heart of this highly-coveted location which, in times gone by, was the inspiration for late 19th century ‘Australian Impressionist’ artists including Streeton, Roberts and McCubbin. Today, Heidelberg inspires singles, couples, families and retirees with its amenity and lifestyle focus. All manner of architectural styles are represented in Heidelberg, from Victorian and Edwardian period homes to Art Deco treasures to modern domains as well as easy-care units and a growing pool of luxury apartments.


Sold by the Crown in 1838, Heidelberg was one of Australia's earliest rural allotments. Originally known as Warringal, the Aboriginal term for eagle's nest, it was renamed Heidelberg after the German city of the same name. The Warringal Cemetery on Upper Heidelberg Road contains many of the oldest graves in Victoria, with some even pre-dating the establishment of the Colony of Victoria. Famous for its stunning views of the Yarra Valley, Heidelberg’s picturesque vistas attracted many artists and influenced the ‘Heidelberg School’ movement of the late 19th century.  Heidelberg was proclaimed a shire in 1871 and its town hall was built in 1937. The suburb was home to the athlete’s village for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games. Today Heidelberg is a desirable locality featuring beautiful parklands, wide-ranging housing stock and established schools, making it an ideal family environment with a rich and unique history.
