Fairfield is an inner-northern suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is shared across the Local Government Areas of the City of Yarra and the City of Darebin. Yarra Bend is a locality in Fairfield.
Fairfield is predominantly residential, with a small north-eastern pocket remaining a light industrial area. It also features a three-storey coffee palace, the Grandview Hotel, built in 1888.
Because it is situated on what many regard as the fringes of Melbourne's popular and much-revived 'inner city', gentrification has been strong, and property prices are high. To the south is the Yarra River and surrounding parkland, and the popular Fairfield Boathouse.
Commercial activity is focused on the shopping strip on Station Street and Wingrove Street, opposite Fairfield railway station. Fairfield's commercial outlets have prospered in recent years, with a recent influx of cafes, bars and specialist shops to Station Street.
Adjacent to the railway station, facing north-east, is the Fairfield Industrial Dog Object, a 6-metre-tall wooden dog.
