Campbellfield is layered with hidden history and sights
Campbellfield is 16 kilometres North of the Melbourne CBD. Campbellfield was home to Ford's Assembly factory on Sydney Road that closed in 2016, but it is also full of history, and a great retail precinct.
Campbellfield is a surprisingly historic suburb. The Scots Uniting Church in Campbellfield is situated at some of the oldest Church grounds in Victoria at 1702 Sydney Road. The first incarnation of the church was built in 1842.
Bus routes 530, 531, 532, 538, 540, and 902 service the area.
