I have a sofabed in my house in Yarraville.
Formerly a working-class suburb, in recent years Yarraville has experienced rapid gentrification due to its proximity to the Melbourne city centre. Yarraville lies immediately north of the West Gate Bridge, and immediately west of its namesake, the Yarra River.
Anderson and Ballarat Streets, in the heart of the Yarraville Village, are lined with refurbished 19th century buildings and dotted with quaint neighbourhood cafés, restaurants and boutique shops. This village atmosphere is anchored by the restored Sun Theatre and the adjacent Sun bookshop. Notable examples of Edwardian and Victorian architecture can be found in Yarraville. The Yarraville Village is home to many award-winning restaurants and cafes. A reflection of Melbourne’s multicultural nature, Yarraville offers an array of world cuisine styles including Greek, Italian, Modern Asian, Indian, Cambodian, Thai, Chinese and Modern Australian.
