The Faces of Greythorn Statues

The history of Greythorn comes alive with the installation of six iconic statues which chronicle the development of this unique precinct nestled within North Balwyn.

From the 1900s when the area was a highly productive citrus orchard, to being home to a violet farm, a koala sanctuary and where in the 1950s the highly fashionable women of Greythorn made a name for themselves with their high fashion, couture and coiffures, Greythorn has grown into a thriving shopping and community hub. It has attracted families from all of the world wanting to live in this prized location in Melbourne’s inner eastern leafy suburbs.

Take a journey of discovery along the Greythorn Central shopping strip and meet the six statues which represent the Faces of Greythorn over the ages. Let each statue introduce themselves to you and give you something to think about of relevance to you and the Greythorn community.
