Suburb Overview

St Albans is a suburb 15 km north-west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Brimbank. At the 2011 Census, St Albans had a population of 35,091.

St Albans' main commercial and shopping precinct is located on Main Road West, Main Road East, Alfrieda Street, the railway station and East Esplanade. It has become a very multicultural area with 53.5% of residents being born overseas and has a high proportion of non-English speaking background residents. The postcode is 3021.

St Albans was first established as a township in 1887 and originally subdivided by the Metropolitan Land and Development Co. Pty. Ltd. who had acquired nearly 1,000 acres in the hope of a quick financial gain during that period's land boom. The town was promoted as an attractive location for professionals who had easy rail access to central Melbourne and adjoining suburbs with a recently constructed railway station platform attracting potential homeowners to industry in nearby locations. St Albans Post Office opened on 22 October 1888.

Development of St Albans suddenly slowed with the economic depression of the late 1890s and did not restart in large numbers until after World War II, with the influx of displaced people and continuing through the 1950s and 1960s with the influx of European migrants in response to the Australian Government's gradual relaxation of its White Australia Policy in 1947, 1957 & 1958.

During the 1890s depression many local farm properties did well, especially when the farmers commenced the dairying of cattle. Horses were also being trained locally for the Melbourne Cup and the Caulfield Guineas, some were successful.

St Albans remained geographically isolated from other suburbs, with large areas of open land between it and other suburbs, until the 1980s.

St Albans is now considered to be a middle-city suburb as the Melbourne Metropolitan area boundary now extends to over 35 km from the Melbourne CBD.

St Albans' ethnic makeup is predominantly second and third generation immigrants. The ABS 2001 Census reported that 43% were of Southern or Eastern European origin, with 10% of Maltese extraction alone and about 20% from the Balkan region, including Albanians, Bosnians, Croatians, Macedonians and Serbs. Significant communities from Vietnam and the Philippines were also reported.

Since the 2001 Census, there has also been a rapid increase in the number of refugees from the Horn of Africa settling in St Albans.

St Albans has three train stations, all in PTV ticketing Zone 2 on the Sydenham line. These are Ginifer, St Albans and Keilor Plains

The Sydenham line is in the progress of having the electrification extended to Sunbury, with a projected completion date in late 2012.
