Abbotsford

Suburb Profile

Overview

The suburb of Abbotsford on the shores of the Parramatta River is a popular enclave for young families and professionals wanting an easy commute to Sydney’s CBD. With Drummoyne, Leichhardt and Balmain all within a short drive, Abbotsford is positioned to make the most of its Inner-West location.

Named after the dramatic Abbotsford House, a grand waterfront residence with a vibrant history, the suburb has seen plenty of change from its younger form as part of Five Dock Farm during the 1800’s. The historic house and its surroundings was also used as the site of a Nestle chocolate factory prior to being redeveloped and restored during the 1990’s.

Abbotsford is surrounded by Hen and Chicken Bay and Abbotsford Bay, with ferries operating hourly services to Parramatta and Circular Quay, while frequent bus services along Victoria and Parramatta Roads make the 20-minute commute to the city a breeze.

Large waterfront homes and apartment buildings take advantage of the impressive views the suburb commands, both east towards the city, north to the leafy Hunters Hill and west for dramatic sunsets over the distant Blue Mountains. Set further back from the water, comfortably sized federation homes and contemporary residences fill the quiet tree-lined streets, with cafés and village shops dotted along the Great North Road making the coffee run a 10-minute round trip.

Next door, Five Dock and Drummoyne boast a range of grocery and dining options, while the Italian hubs of Leichhardt and Haberfield are renowned for their epicurean prowess. With a host of private and public schooling options close by, it’s impossible to find fault with this popular suburb.
