Abbotsford takes its name from the estate of John Orr, which in turn is named after a ford in Scotland’s Tweed River, used by the Abbott of Melrose Abbey.
Abbotsford is home to Carlton and United Breweries, the company which produces Victoria Bitter and Foster’s Lager. The malt smell of brewing often fills the surrounding area. Visitors can see the beer making process at the Carlton Brewhouse centre and tour the brewery. Smaller microbreweries such as Moon Dog Craft Brewery are also located in Abbotsford.
Abbotsford is a prominent early industrial area and as a result, there are several outstanding examples of industrial buildings. The most prominent is Denton Hat Mills, a large turn of the century industrial complex designed by architect William Pitt in polychrome brick in 1888.
