"Beautiful little Melbourne suburb"

Been living here for nearly two years now, and can honestly say that it is one of the best places I've ever lived. Quiet, safe, peaceful, picturesque with the national park to the rear, close to public transport (either bus or Boronia train station) and shopping (including a Kmart open til midnight close by at Boronia.. and just a 10 min drive to Knox City and Eastland Shopping Centres). Never had a problem with security, only the occasional party that is usually wrapped up by midnight. Plenty of access to medical facilities as well as schools.
Pros
  • Beautiful views, close to national park
  • Quiet and safe
  • Close to shopping, schools, transport
Cons
  • Some streets are narrow and residents can park inconveniently

"Love the Basin!"

I have lived here for 8 years and love the fact you feel as though you're in the country when you're only 5 mins from Boronia and all the hustle and bustle!
