Reviews of Boronia, VIC

"A great suburb with everything you need and huge potentials"

Boronia mall is a bit outdated but honestly if you are looking for an area in which you grow your family and enjoy the open spaces available while having access to a lot of amenities around you, I do suggest Boronia! Also, there is a strong sense of community here....

Looking for a home in Boronia?

29th November 2021

"Mmm nah."

I’ve lived here for 28 years. The main part of town is screaming out for some kind of renovation that will pull the depressing Boronia mall out of the 80’s. The infrastructure around those parts at Dorsey square feels so dated.
Boronia is a good spot for living in terms of how close it is to everything good. Like Mount Dandenong, the Yarra valley, the beach and the city. They’re all within reasonable trips. I consider it more of a base for the things I love rather than somewhere I love living. It has everything you’d expect a suburb to have. Schools and childcare, lots of football ovals, parks and shops - mostly just the usual suspects of Australian takeaway. Not great vegan options. It seems like the suburb over - Bayswater has seen rise to considerably more developmental refresh than Boronia of late. Shopping outside of Woolworths Boronia is often a comical and sometimes sketchy experience. Growing up it was a pretty conservative area. I feel like the insane development has given rise to a lot more younger families and people living out here. It’s wild how many apartments and townhouse developments are going in.

But overall I just think it kinda sucks 😂 the estates are fine. Maybe I’m just used to it. Or maybe I can’t get over the Boronia mall. It’s redeeming quality is that it has a K-mart. But that’s right next to a really old
Coles. Which is made redundant by the bigger and better Coles like 5 mins away in Bayswater.

"Great place to live"

I have lived in Boronia since 2012 and have never regretted the decision to move here. There is a real sense of community where I live, neighbours are friendly, kids still play in the street and people take pride in their homes.

"Was perfect but the scum of life migrating"

Boronia is a unbelievable suburb , there are lots of great eateries and drinking holes to visit. It's value is great , lifestyle is awesome with lots of parks and nature reserves close by. For two years it was very safe and very good this years 2021 not so much anymore. Lots of rest assistance scum bags are migrating to this area and we are talking ex jail birds and recovering drug addicts. Bayswater since has had a clean up around the station particularly , which I wouldn't venture too at night even now. The displacement of these derelicts are filtering into boronia by means of the government assisting them to afford housing that's not in there grips before covid now seems a good deal. On a weekend day it's very quite and peaceful but come the weekend there are hoons doing stunts on the road , I watched a drug bust two weeks ago in my street and alot of homeless people loiter around knox city and boronia mall at night looking to pick a fight. High tide the police did some beat work and it cleaned it up again. Closer to the mall seems to get better but for context it's safe overall just stick to your home and the major shopping centres during day light hours at night be inside away from the road warriors and drunk / high homeless derelicts. I have almost been whiped out crossing Burwood highway by a hoon who ran a red light. Stay away from the boronia train station as a regular drunk homeless guy patrols on foot itching for a fight. Increase in police patrols would clear out the scum of earth and restore it back to its once great value. Its semi safe I'd say fairly compared to where I used to live in burwood which is completely safe. 3 of 5 suburb. Can get to 5 again if the police started to patrol.

Rentals in Boronia

15th June 2020

"Great green suburb!!"

After readings some of the reviews it feels like I don't know Boronia all that much even after owning and living a house here for close to a year now. The unusual encounter with druggies etc. are usual for Melbourne. Not sure where are those commenting lived before that they are surprised. Train station does have some people hanging around that you want to avoid but there is a police station next to it and there is foot patrol by police all the time.

To me Boronia is a solid investment place if you want to live in the east and access all the great facilities that are available to you. All the major highways, public transports are available at arms length. House price is increasing in last few years and rent yield is pretty good. Not to mention that Boronia is perhaps the only established in the east which is so close to the mountain yet can reach CBD in less than an hour. This is a great suburb to raise a family.

"Beautiful"

Born and raised in the Ferntree Gully Boronia area. Never encountered a problem with anyone. Foot of the Dandenong ranges. Trees, birds, clean air, views and easy access to the city. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

"Buying a house in Boronia is a great investment"

As a real estate agent, I suggest buying a house in Boronia is an excellent investment. Boronia has been one of the high performers in growth suburbs (14.5% from Jun to September 2019).

https://reiv.com.au/property-data/high-performers

- 50 min to CBD by train during peak hours and 45 min during the weekend via M3.
- Almost 10 min drive to Eastland and Westfield shopping centres
- Very green with a lot of parks and all the amenities around you
- It is yet affordable while prices are going up!

"could be better with a new shopping centre"

Boronia mall is a little run down. Boronia can be a better suburb with a new shopping centre though Knox westfield and eastland shopping centres are not very far away!!

"Nice and leafy but it needs a new shopping centre!"

Boronia and the surrounding suburbs are great!

It's at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, so you got all the wildlife and bushwalks at your doorsteps. There are awesome restaurants and cafes around you and more is popping here and there everyday! The commute to the city via either Burwood Highway or M3 is just 45 minutes or the train just takes under an hour.

Boronia mall should be probably demolished and a new shopping centre should be developed....

After all, It's family friendly and has a great community spirit in most parts!

"Love the place!"

I've lived in Boronia for 10 years and absolutely love it. Lovely little suburb filled with parks and walking trails as well as a picturesque view of the Dandenong ranges. I've never felt unsafe and have no issues walking around the area in the evenings or any time of day for that matter. I find most of the residents very friendly and feel a sense of community here. I would recommend Boronia to anyone who likes the country side village feel without being too far away from the city. The mall is a little run down but new cafes and restaurants are popping up and making it much nicer.

Could not disagree more...Are you sure you have been living in Boronia?!! Never seen what you are talking about.

ben35

Sorry, there is a problem here. My comment above is for johna55 review (next review).

johna55

Now funnily enough, this website has removed my review. Guess they only allow real estate agents spruiking bad suburbs!

ben35

Johna55, what if you are a real estate agent! You are so diligently doing your propaganda spreading! And you raised this idea first yourself! I am doubtful!

"A poor suburb filled with bad-tempered and nasty bogan types. Stay away"

Have lived here for over eight years and in that time have had to deal with - a violent gang of youths trying to jump over my fence in the middle of the night, hoons racing up and down the street at all times of the day and police regularly attending a neighbouring household where doof doof and revving cars are the usual.

The train station and surrounds are even worse, with syringes and smashed bottles regularly spotted on the ground, and drugged up bogans loitering around the decrepit shopping centre, which would be better razed to the ground. It is hard to believe that anyone would live here given the choice. If you have the financial means, please save yourself the trouble and stay away.

"Affordable Suburban Living"

A friend moved here recently and I am pleasantly surprised. Affordable housing on proper sized blocks. A 45 minute train trip to the CBD and apparently you get a seat!

Lovely drive from Boronia up to Sassafras, about 10 minutes. Here you find lovely cafes and quirky shops.

The Boronia Mall lets Boronia down. My friend hopes this place is earmarked for redevelopment.

"A little grungy but it's alright."

Boronia's a bit of a hit or miss, housing prices are increasing slowly to reflect it. The train station in well built in a convenient location but train timetables are a tad sparse due to it's location.

The bike trails around the station (rail trail) connecting to the eastlink trail are really nice for jogging and cycling and is well maintained. My only gripe is the shattered glass bottles and that people constantly leave all over the trail. It is both a hazard to cyclists and pedestrians and is particularly concerning as the trail runs through and connects many of the parks and playgrounds where kids and families play and walk their dogs.

During the day it's okay and around most public areas at night there are protective services officers are visible evidence of police patrol. There is a general sense of community in many of the residential areas, especially around local milkbars and schools.

However, I try and avoid staying out and about at night. I don't feel safe at these times especially around the bus stops outside of police patrol area. On one of the rare occasions I've gotten home late I have been stopped by strangers and threatened for money. Public toilets still have to be locked to prevent "anti social behavior."

Overall, boronia is a nice place to live and it's getting better with the areas around train stations and parks being developed further, but there are a couple of people who ruin the area for the community.

"Beautiful Boronia"

Full disclosure, I'm a real estate agent, and I do sell in Boronia! However, I sell all over Victoria, and I really feel Boronia is a wonderful suburb that is really on the move. Boronia is perfect for families with loads of open space and parks. The environment is lovely, loads of trees line the streets, and you are right at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges. Boronia is changing and I recommend seriously looking at buying here as I believe in time it will prove to be a great investment.

"An absolute delight"

Moved from Rowville 6 months ago after 27 years and it’s been a life changer. Am in a beautiful pocket of Boronia surrounded by trees and birds. Amazing views of the hills. Little traffic and a feeling of community.
As for Boronia’s ‘bad reputation’ well I haven’t seen or heard of any problems but the absence of visible signs of the police would help more.

"Great suburb to live!"

I lived in ferntree gully before which is very close to boronia. Boronia, where we almost shopped everything before. We bought a stunning townhouse last year and really loved it. We find it very quiet and peaceful. Never experience what these people saying about bad things in Boronia. Shopping late nights every week and never had issues about it. We love our neighboorhood. Hey, not only bogans living in boronia I can make sure of that! My neighboorhood is surrounded by wealthy business people and professionals. Luxury cars every houses, I don’t agree with these people saying stupid things about this area. There are bad people and bad things in every suburbs wherever you go. There might be areas in boronia you could experience these bad stuff but not the whole town of boronia. Just like every streets, every cities, every countries, everywhere there will be bad people and bad stuff. But for me and my family, this is our home now so we really enjoy and love it!

"Good place to live"

Lived here over 12 years and commute daily by train. Nice green spaces/parks, friendly neighbours, proximity to the Dandenomgs and transport access to city. shopping area could be improved particularly boronia mall but there is also very close proximity to both eastlands and knox shopping centre. kids attend st Joseph's primary school which has a very nurturing and pastoral approach with a strong community focus including a great fete in March of every year. Boronia is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but overall it's been a good place to live and bring up my family over the last 12 years.

"A hidden gem!"

We moved here a little over 3 years ago, and have been enjoying getting to know Boronia and the surrounding areas :)

Highlights;
* Have found it to be affordable without being too "far out" (have noticed prices going up since that time though)
* very close to the Dandenongs-which is great to explore!
* Plenty of local shops and essential services (eg supermarkets, post office, library etc)
* awesome for bargain hunters with lots of $2 shops and op shops!
* as others have mentioned, it's not too far from the City, Knox Shopping Centre and plenty of public transport options (trains/busses)
* great for families with young children with plenty of local parks/playgrounds (many which have recently been upgraded), playgroup and Libraries- both in Boronia and surrounding areas (check out Knox City Council Website for what's around)

A couple of things to mention;

* Boronia Mall (next to Kmart) is a bit depressing as there are lots of closed shops (would be great if this could be re developed)
* I find the main shopping areas a bit disjointed to get around at times- much easier to walk than drive eg between Boronia Junction and Kmart area-especially just before Christmas!

In terms of other comments made about "Bogans" and it being a dangerous area, there are people living in this area who are disadvantaged (as you can find in most areas) but I've personally not felt unsafe while living here.

I wouldn't describe Boronia as a "cool" suburb but feel it's an "up and coming" suburb....definitely check it out and...watch this space! :)

"stay away"

This aria has gone down hill rapidly over the last 5 years. The state government has put up a heap of commission houses that has braught drug addicts into the aria in droves. The local shopping mall resembles a wasteland. Assaults are commonplace. Drug deals are done in the open and the police don't care. You regularly see them go down in the McDonald's car park opposite the police station or on the road behind the police station. Yes there is a train station and busses but they are far to dangerous to use. People openly carry weapons around them. I'm so glad I have just gotten out of the aria. Unless your interests include tattoos, bikies and drug abuse, Boronia is not for you

Ridiculous review. I've lived in the area for over 12 years, walk 15 minutes to the station (evening and night), catch the train and buses occasionally and have never felt threatened. We've never had a break in to property or vehicle or experienced any other crime unlike other areas I've lived ( Narre warren, ferntree gully and inner Sydney). There are many families here and a mix of people with professional, service or trade oriented oriented jobs. Around some of the areas near chemists you do sometimes see some people who are drug affected but that is not atypical for a larger metropolitan centre.

ishd

Absolutely ridiculous. Just unfair to a beautiful suburb. Travelling to city 5 days a week from past 2 years, police patrolling all the time.

gracec6

Haha! Youre glad youre out of them. Maybe youre one of them! This is not true! We lived in the area for many years, bought a stunning townhouse last year but we shopped almost everything here. I myself even doing late night shopping as I have a 3 yr old kid. Never experience any of these stupid comments!

davidg26

Well for all of the doubters..... I have held a security advisor licence for the past 11 yeas, I have a security studies degree, I am currently studying my masters in security and strategic studies. Here are the hard facts. The crim rate in Boronia rose more than 30% in the last financial year. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/outer-east/drug-crimes-soar-in-knox-thefts-burglaries-up/news-story/d96e97df8df7c941577091cfd42a2bde. In 2011, there were more than 250 registered sex offenders in the suburb, which was approximately 8% of those in Victoria. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/outer-east/no-new-leads-on-missing-boronia-schoolgirl-bung-siriboon/news-story/ea839719f7cb56448fdae886c2550e07
and from what I have heard, that number has doubled in the last 7 years. And if the aria around Boronia station is so safe, why has the federal government just announced over $400,00 dollars to make it safe?

I have come across young families all the time because of booming new development . Boronia is central to everything. Love it.

gracec6

I don't agree! Just bought a beautiful townhouse last year but eversince we shopped at Boronia as we lived in ferntree gully very close to the area. We don't experience any of these people saying or commenting! This is the world's biggest problem, inequality that makes people have disunity. Good and bad things actually happen within us. If we treat others differently they would treat us the same. Just like you get what give! I don't think there is problem with bogans. They are human like you. You're just blessed you're not in the same page. We can treat others nicely, we ourselves could make a difference in people's lives like bogans you are saying. Wherever or whichever suburbs you wanna stay if you have that superiority attitude and looked down pn other people you're not gonna have a peaceful living. We can have compassion for people like them to make this world a better place.

"Boronia - a great place to live"

I have lived in Boronia for 18 years and it has so many good things about it that I don't understand why the property prices are not higher in value. I have lived in other areas of Knox and I believe there are more good points about living in Boronia compared to other areas of Knox. Boronia is very much underrated as a place to live.

"Great family suburb"

I have lived in and around Boronia my whole life. Boronia is a very family friendly area at the foothills of the Mt Dandenongs. Shopping options are great with numerous sets of shops within the suburb as well as Knox City only a 5-10 minute drive away. Only 20 minutes from Sassafras and another 5-10 to Olinda- great places to visit on a Sunday.
Pro's:
Lots of schools
Tim Neville arboretum
Heaps of public transport with Boronia Station in the heart of Boronia.
Cons:
Not a lot of nightlife and about 45-50 minutes to the city centre.
Overall, a family friendly and peaceful suburb.

"A great place to live"

It's far enough away from the city to be in the trees and space but is only 30km away from the city so it doesn't take too long to get there.
My favourite things about Boronia are the people, the atmosphere and wind in the trees on a peaceful night.
I've lived in Boronia for 25 years in the same house, the neighbourhood is friendly, there are plenty of people walking their dogs up the steep hill toward the dandenongs national park. I don't hear cars at night, just possums sometimes.

I bought a house 6 months ago here in Boronia. Since then I have found my neighbours to be the best I've ever had so far, really friendly and down to earth people. I live on Dorset rd which is a busy road yet I am so close to absolutely everything I could ever need, everything is within walking distance. The public transport in Boronia is fantastic, the shopping is great and really reasonably priced, Kmart is now also open 24 hrs so that's even better. Kent Park Primary is down the road in F.T.G which was recently known to show the best academic results from there students in the whole of Knox. Boronia also has fantastic places for eating, there are cafeteria's everywhere, and all different types of ethnic foods. Boronia Hall is great for parties or functions and we have our own bowling alley and picture theatre. There are many things here for kids including the Abortorium just down on Dorset Rd, a dance school, martial arts school, tennis courts, A battery operated car motor racing track where kids race there cars on a Wednesday night. All this and then just down the road is Knox City Shopping Centre. Boronia is a great place to buy a house, it isn't as expensive as the surrounding areas such as Wantirna, Knox, F.T.G, Scoresby yet has everything those areas have including more.... BORONIA A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE AND IT'S AFFORDABLE!!!!!
