Transport and Proximity

While residents claim it to be one of the city’s finest suburbs, Aberfeldie remains under the radar. Sitting on the northern banks of the Maribyrnong River, it stretches to border Essendon and Moonee Ponds in the north and east, Essendon West in the west, and Maribyrnong across the water in the south. Only 8km from the centre of Melbourne, the suburb’s undulating terrain affords spectacular city outlooks, with the river trail and Afton Street Conservation Park a collective hotspot for sun-baked exercise and relaxation. A locale exuding quiet opulence, Aberfeldie sits a step back from arterial roads and train lines, with locals enjoying the resulting calm.

Aesthetic, Appeal, and History

Leaning into its discreet grandeur, Aberfeldie takes its name from the town of Aberfeldy, Scotland, in which one of the area’s first land buyers, James Robertson, was raised. Decorated with modest mid-century and inter-war properties, the suburb’s history shines through 19th century icons which still stand today. With a captivating collection of Victorian builds on substantial lots along Aberfeldie Street, Combermere Street, and surrounds, the commanding Clydebank (now Ave Maria College) showcases its art-related history with pride, while an eclectic range of homes scatter the suburb’s hilly streets. Thanks to its absolute river frontage, The Boulevard garners citywide interest, with dated ‘50s and ‘60s houses making way suburb-wide for splendorous, contemporary innovation. Thanks to the lauded schools in and around the suburb’s borders, families keenly follow the Aberfeldie housing market, its exclusivity meaning healthy competition for any available houses.

Vibrancy and Lifestyle

Poyntons Nursery attracts green thumbs from across Melbourne, while the adjacent, dog-friendly Aberfeldie Park welcomes flocks of visitors to its vast fields, athletics track, and perimeter circuit. Steeped in significance, the Aberfeldie Football Club and Essendon Tennis Club call Clifton Park home, with adjoining Afton Street flowing down to the serene river and conservation park. Its scenery every bit as remarkable as its inner-eastern equivalents, peaceful strolls along the river’s banks promise to ease a busy mind, with those in-the-know continuing west, enjoying breathtaking views of the city skyline on a hilltop park bench. Riverside Park gives parents a chance to unwind on a sunny afternoon, with pergolas, barbecues, WCs, coffee trucks, and gelati regularly on offer, while the centrepiece Black Sapphire Pirate Ship marks one of Melbourne’s favourite playgrounds. The adjacent Poyntons jetty sees a tram boat frequently moor to serve passing walkers, cyclists, and joggers exceptional coffee, with plentiful families planting their picnic flag, claiming a nearby rug site for the day. Tantalising customers with homemade pastries, traditional panini, and phenomenal coffee, 25 Tilba St and Aberfeldie Salumeria headline an outstanding selection of cafés, with North & Eight, Too Good Bakers, and Calmer Cafe each catering to daily droves. A cornerstone of the community, Boundy’s Supermarket has served generations of locals from when George Boundy opened its doors 100 years ago, with his family taking exceptional care of the shop and suburb ever since.

Thanks to its riverside position and lack of through traffic, Aberfeldie delivers calm streetscapes that locals love to walk through.
