Garfield

The Garfield township is one of the five village style towns that run parallel with the country railway line between Pakenham & Drouin.

The town was originally called Cannibal creek but was renamed in honour of the assassinated American president James Garfield, Cannibal creek is now known as the area around Mt Cannibal which is now a reserve with sensational walking tracks and the summit is a great spot to take in the views of the surrounding countryside.

Like all great little country towns, Garfield revolves around the great local pub and the football club which are known as the Garfield Stars.

Numerous shops operate along the town’s Main St including a great little bakery and one of the finest Butcher Shops in the district.

Property wise Garfield has the perfect mix of period homes, modern brick veneer houses, broad acreages, farms and lifestyle properties. There are numerous unit sites which suit investors, retirees and people looking for the low maintenance living.

Garfield’s popularity has always been solid and will only grow with time.
