Bunnings and a DFO on one side and Forest Hill Chase Mall on the other (with a small movie theatre) make it extremely convenient for shopping, plus some decent cafes.
Local schools have been recommended as relatively good. There is a cricket and football field with associated clubs but the area lacks a basketball/netball court for young people.
The locals are generally quiet, friendly, nature fans and mad about dogs, with a communal atmosphere created by Blackburn Lake Sanctuary.
Where can you find absolute peace and quiet in an idyll surrounding with well-maintained houses but with several transport and shopping options at your doorstep, well Blackburn is your suburb to go to if those are your choices.
The Blackburn Station still has a small town feel with small cafes in its surroundings. Good schools -both primary and secondary – are there viz Boxhill and Blackburn High plus Burwood Heights.
If you are looking for a safe, family oriented suburb with decent, well educated professionals as your next door neighbors then this is the ideal place for settling down.
Awesome that it is just 25 mins to the city on the train; the upgraded station has been a great improvement.
Eastern Freeway and Burwood Highway are relatively close and easy to access.
