About Ferny Grove

Get directions

Before the Second World War, Ferny Grove was mainly known for its pleasant picnic grounds along the banks of Kedron Brook, large areas of forest and fern-filled valleys, one of which gives the suburb its name. After the war, the area was primarily industrial, containing a large claypit and tile factory. When this factory ceased operation in the 1960’s, Ferny Grove was redeveloped for housing.
