Situated 15km east of the CBD, and centred around Whitehorse Road and Station Street, Box Hill is a wonderfully diverse suburb renowned for its range of vibrant, Asian eateries and retailers.
Now referred to as Melbourne’s “second CBD”, Box Hill is a spirited neighbourhood, with a unique multicultural energy and a mix of great amenities that attract locals and visitors.
Experience the bustle and colour of one of Melbourne's most unique shopping destinations – Box Hill Central. Absorb some artistic flair and culture at the Box Hill Town Hall which hosts everything from art exhibitions to Japanese food festivals. Visit Aqualink, a sporting epicentre or, during Chinese New Year, enjoy the festivities in and around the Box Hill Mall and along Whitehorse Road between Station Street and Nelson Road.
With Box Hill TAFE being a major drawcard, an efficient public transport network and easy access to the Eastern Freeway, the suburb tends to attract a lot of young, independent people. However, you will also find families and retirees.
Box Hill has an array of beautiful period homes (particularly from the 1930s and 40s), Art Deco homes, modernist townhouses and apartments.
The suburb’s cultural diversity and growing appeal have made it one of the more desirable places to live in Melbourne's East.
