Burwood  Victoria

    •   Show me: a map of Burwood

Originally known by the delightfully lyrical name of Ballyshanassy, Burwood came into being in May 1879, and has long been admired for its leafy, tree-lined streets and its sobriety.

The last bar door swung shut in 1920 and Burwood has remained a steadfastly dry zone ever since. The south-east Melbourne suburb is also home to the Presbyterian Ladies College, which has been finishing the cream of young Victorian womanhood for more than 125 years.

Central to major shopping centres in Melbourne’s inner south-east, Burwood is a well-established suburb well served by public transport.

The Tooronga Village Shopping Centre is only a couple of kilometres west along Toorak Road, at which point you are only a brisk stroll from two of Melbourne’s wealthiest suburbs, South Yarra and Toorak, and some of the most magnificent homes in the city.

While many of the grand old estates have been subdivided, enough National Trust-listed mansions and other stately homes remain to paint a graphic picture for the visitor of just how exclusive and majestic this part of Melbourne once was.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, which lie between South Yarra and the Melbourne CBD, are among the finest in the world and were once described by English author and creator of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, as 'the most beautiful place I have ever seen'.

Set in a 13 ha reserve of gardens and lawns, the nearby Shrine of Remembrance is an awe-inspiring memorial to the tens of thousands of Australians who have died in overseas battlefields in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
