Fawkner is located around 12kms from the CBD, in the City of Moreland, and is bordered by the Merri Creek on the east, the Hume Highway on the West, the Western Ring Road on the north and Boundary Road on the south. Until after World War II, much for Fawkner remained farmland and it wasn’t until 1949 that the first public housing was built by the Housing Commission.

Fawkner is accessible by public transport, with local stations Gowrie and Fawkner both on the Upfield train line. There is also a local bus linking Gowrie train station with Preston’s Northland shopping centre. The Fawkner Crematorium and Memorial Park is the state’s largest cemetery and was opened in 1906. It has a collection of historic graves that date back to the early days of Melbourne’s settlement, including John Batman’s, the founder of the City of Melbourne.

There are two government primary schools in Fawkner – Fawkner Primary and Moomba Park Primary and two Catholic primary schools – St Mark’s and St Matthew’s. John Fawkner College is the suburb’s secondary school. Fawkner is also home to the Islamic College, Darul Ulum College of Victoria, established in 1997. Local shopping highlights include Bonwick Street’s Zet & Zataar bakery, Master Turkish Delights and Sweets on Major Street and Anderson Deli on Anderson Road.
