Welcome to the temporary site of the Glenferrie Road Shopping Centre! Our New website is almost ready to lanch. Untill then all the information about what's going on in Glenferrie Hawthorn will be posted here... Enjoy...

Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, is like the tardis. Now, it has recently come to my attention that not everyone understands that reference, so I’ll elaborate. The tardis is the time machine and spacecraft in Doctor Who. You know, the one that looks like a 1960s style London police box. So, it seems small from the outside, but is much larger with far much more to offer on the inside. Like Glenferrie Road.  Whether it is down the laneways, up some stairs, just off the main road, there is a lot going on down here and all of it’s good.

Down the Lane 
Laneways have become synonymous with Melbourne’s CBD layout, offering hideaways from the busy streets and boasting eclectic shopping and dining options. However, the CBD doesn’t have the monopoly on laneway culture. Straddling both sides of the second busiest suburban railway station in Melbourne, Glenferrie’s laneways have a lot to offer, whether it’s cupcakes, vinyl or a little taste of France. Jo Rittey headed down the lane to have a chat to the people that make the laneways what they are. Read More.....
Glenferrie Festival March 2016
Glenferrie, it's all about community.
In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve those ‘one-of-a-kind’ businesses with distinctive character have an economic and social advantage. Local businesses play an important role in building strong communities; they link residents to                                                                            their local area through the provision of                                                                                services and a unique “one off” experience                                                                          that cannot be found in the mega malls,                                                                                forever expanding with repeats of                                                                                          chain store land fill.
