Out and about in Moonee Valley - just another day in the suburbs.

Remnant tree from Fairview Farm.
This Moreton Bay fig is on the corner of The Avenue and Hotham Road, Niddrie, a remnant of the garden of the old farm 'Fairview'. The original bluestone house stood opposite until the 1960s. The tree has been placed on the Moonee Valley Council's Significant Tree Register, but it is cluttered with postal installations and a too-close planting of a cypress tree, not to mention overheard wires.
