In the past Abbotsford was looked down upon -- little more than a mix of working class cottages and industrial wasteland taking advantage of its proximity to the Yarra River.

Today, however, Abbotsford's fortunes are changing. Thanks to its position sandwiched between between popular Richmond and Kew and up and coming Collingwood and Clifton Hill, Abbotsford's larger allotments and disused factories are piquing the interest of those who know good value when they see it.
