"Quiet family friendly but everything on your doorstep - transport, schools, shopping, parks, hospital"

I love that Box Hill North is quiet and family friendly with good primary and secondary schools. You can get to these places on foot and you see many families/kids walking to school everyday. On your doorstep is the train station and 109 tram at Box Hill, fantastic restaurants, good bus network and Box Hill hospital. Westfield Doncaster is a 5 minute drive or 5 minute 903 bus ride away. I leave the car a lot and walk to most places. Friendly feel and pleasant, has a sense of history which is something I like. Teenagers like the fact they can get around easily without relying on mum/dad all the time. It is also well placed geographically, near enough to eastern freeway, easy to get to city, to eastern suburbs or SE (beaches). I'm glad we moved here.

"Terrific suburb to reside"

Box Hill North is a terrific place to live with every possible amenity available. A very peaceful and quite residential area with a great mix of people.
Only minutes to the Eastern free-way for city access or minutes walk to Box Hill central for transportation. A good mixture of local shopping strips notably Kerrimuir shops plus also close and convenient to Blackburn North shopping centre where parking is abundant.

Box Hill central is terrific for Asian cuisine and fresh foods but parking can sometimes be a pain.

Overall very green with terrific walking tracks, parks and parkland's. A very very good selections of local schools from kinder, primary and secondary.

A very well positioned suburb with a good mixture of homes, units and apartments ranging from brand new ones and older ones to period residence.

A very affordable suburb with excellent growth over the years and good rental opportunities

I don't find Box Hill North to be noisy at all. I have personally resided in Box Hill North for a good number of years and have worked in the local/immediate area for over twelve years.

A great place to live!

"No good anymore"

I have lived in box hill north for nearly 10 years and can't wait to leave. It is handy to public transport, although the box hill railway station is a place I avoid after dark as it is unsafe.
The suburb is handy as it's close to the city, hospitals and tafe colleges, however I don't enjoy living here any more. Too noisy, too much traffic and my street is a total nightmare. Some days I can't even get out of my driveway due to parked cars both sides of the road and traffic cutting through to Elgar road! Property prices are soaring too.
Pros
  • Good public transport
Cons
  • Too noisy
  • Unsafe in parts
  • Too much traffic
