Suburb Overview

Abbotsford is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2 km east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the City of Yarra. At the 2011 Census, Abbotsford had a population of 4,907.

Abbotsford is bounded by Collingwood, Richmond and Clifton Hill and separated from Kew by the meandering Yarra River. Formerly part of the City of Collingwood, it is now part of the City of Yarra. Victoria Street forms the southern boundary to Abbotsford;Hoddle Street forms the western boundary;the Eastern Freeway forms the northern boundary while the Yarra forms the eastern boundary with Kew, in Boroondara.

Some well known Abbotsford landmarks include the Skipping Girl Sign, Dights Falls, the former Collingwood Town Hall, Victoria Park Football Stadium and Abbotsford Convent.

Abbotsford is designated one of the 82 Major Activity Centres listed in the Metropolitan Strategy Melbourne 2030.

Abbotsford takes its name from the estate of John Orr, which in turn is named after a ford in Scotland's Tweed River, used by the Abbott of Melrose Abbey.

The Abbotsford area was once bush along the Yarra River sporadically occupied by the Wurundjeri people.

The area of Abbotsford was first subdivided in 1838 and sold at an auction in Sydney. One of these lots was purchased by John Dight and the lot was later called Dight's Paddock. Dight then further subdivided the land into 12 hectare lots and in 1878 Edwin Trenerry, a Cornwall -based property developer, purchased a large portion of Dight

In order to provide recreational facilities for potential residents and hence boost the value of the lots being offered for sale Fred Brown and solicitor David Abbott created a sports oval and called it Victoria Park in 1879.

Abbotsford quickly established as an industrial area, home to many Irish, mostly factory workers, and until the construction of Melbourne's sewerage and drainage systems was regularly flooded by the Yarra River. Like many inner Melbourne suburbs, its working class origins have given it a reputation for crime.

Since World War II the area has become quite ethnically diverse, with many Greeks, Italians, Vietnamese, Chinese and more recently Arabs and Africans, making it their home.

In the 1960s a section of the northern part of the suburb was demolished to make way for the Eastern Freeway.
