One of inner city Melbourne’s most unassuming neighbourhoods, Abbotsford is characterised by a wide breadth of cultural influences. From its taste of Vietnam on Victoria Street, to the classic Aussie pubs and Italian-inspired cafes, Abbotsford offers something for all manner of tastes.
Central to the suburb’s identity is the Abbotsford Convent. Featuring the popular Convent Bakery, along with c3 Contemporary Art Space and weekly craft and farmers’ markets, this social hub is home to a vibrant and diverse community.
Abbotsford’s charm lies in its subtle eclecticism and quirk. Most Melburnians might recall the area’s iconic neon Skipping Girl Vinegar sign, a fitting example of the small details that make this quietly eventful suburb quite remarkable.
In saying so, summer is soon coming to an end, so make the most out the sunshine, stretch your legs and take this chance to explore Abbotsford as one of Melbourne’s great cultural destinations.
