Canterbury is famed for its leafy boulevards and large, ornate houses, Canterbury is among Melbourne’s most expensive and exclusive suburbs.
The railway station is in many ways responsible for the suburb’s existence: before opening of the railway to the city in 1882, the area was a semi-rural area. Even then, it was occupied by the well to do. Many of these early residents, and in some cases, their properties, are remembered in the street names of the suburb. Canterbury Post Office opened on 22 November 1870.
The first subdivision in the area came in 1855, when Michael Logan created the “Claremont Park Estate” within the area of Canterbury Road, Bryson Street, Prospect Hill Road and Logan Street.
At around this time, Edward Snowden settled on 7 hectares in the area centred on a manor he named Monomeath. In 1900 Snowden’s estate was subdivided and sold off to form what is now Monomeath Avenue, and residents such as notable architect Percy Kernot and prominent citizen George Coghill moved in. The road was paved in 1911 and oak trees were planted along its sides. Over time it has gained much cachet in Australian society, famed for its wealthy and often eccentric residents.
Canterbury is regarded as one of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs, particularly the “Golden Mile” – a term referring to that part of Mont Albert Road running west from Balwyn Road and the avenues that connect it to Canterbury Road, including Monomeath Avenue, which is lined by huge century old oak trees and grand ornate mansions and is home to many notable politicians and leaders of business and industry.
Canterbury extends as far as Mont Albert Road in the north, Burke Road in the west, Chatham and Highfield Roads in the East and Riversdale Road to the south. The main thoroughfare through Canterbury is Canterbury Road, which runs east-west.
Schools in Canterbury include Camberwell Grammar School, Camberwell Girls Grammar School, Canterbury Girls Secondary College, Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar School, Camberwell High School and Canterbury Primary School.
The main shopping area in Canterbury is around the railway station and includes shops in Canterbury Road as well as Maling Road. Larger shopping centres nearby include Burke Road in Camberwell and Whitehorse Road in Balwyn.
Canterbury is serviced by the Canterbury and East Camberwell stations on the Lilydale and Belgrave train lines.
