History

The village of Ivanhoe was established by 1850 and from 1853 the name Ivanhoe – a nod to Sir William Scott’s novel of the same name – was in use. An agricultural and dairy farming heritage gradually gave way to market gardens as well as community facilities including churches and hotels. Residential development took off after 1910 and in the 1930s the first AV Jennings housing development was located in Ivanhoe. Schools including Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar and Ivanhoe Grammar opened in 1903 and 1915 respectively.  Influential Australians have made their mark on this sought-after suburb. Academy Award-winning Australian actress Cate Blanchett grew up in Ivanhoe and TV personality and radio presenter, Wilbur Wilde calls the area home. Another Ivanhoe inspiration is Australian Paralympic swimmer, Sam Bramham.
