With its roots harking back to the 1800s and seeing a surge of recent popularity, Yarraville now offers locals a unique blend of vibrant multi-culturalism and traditional charm. Favoured by families and busy professionals alike, the inner-city suburb’s true sense of community and village-like atmosphere contrasts with the cosmopolitan crackle of the famous Yarraville market.
Nestled amongst newer developments, Edwardian and Victorian homes are reminders of the heritage, as are the cobbled streets that still grace the village centre where the Art Deco Sun Theatre provides a glamourous focal point. Cafes, bars and an eclectic mix of contemporary boutiques and family-run businesses bring residents in their droves to enjoy what this fashionable neighbourhood has to offer.
Situated just 6km from Melbourne’s CBD and even closer to the Docklands precinct, Yarraville boasts a metro train station and is well-serviced by a network of bus routes, whilst major arterials guarantee a straightforward commute by car. Yarraville Gardens and Stony Creek Reserve ensure there are green spaces to enjoy and families are spoilt with a plethora of sporting clubs and proximity to fine schooling options.
