City of Boroondara

Defined by beautiful boulevards, exceptional properties and high-performing schools, it’s easy to see why Boroondara boasts some of Melbourne’s most south-after postcodes.

From the palatial period homes of Canterbury, Hawthorn, Kew and Surrey Hills, to the sophisticated townhouses of Camberwell, and the family friendly abodes of Ashburton, Burwood, Balwyn and Glen Iris, Boroondara is one of Melbourne’s most aspirational destinations. Home to Swinburne and Deakin universities and some of Melbourne’s best public and private schools, including Xavier College, Methodist Ladies' College, Camberwell Grammar, Scotch College, and Balwyn High School, Boroondara’s educational offerings are second to none.

Vibrant shopping precincts in Burke and Glenferrie roads, Burwood Village and Kew Junction offer the perfect blend of cafes, cuisine, fashion and homewares, complemented by the exclusive boutiques of Maling Rd and Ashburton village, and the eclectic offerings of the famous Camberwell Sunday Market. The leafy inner-east municipality has dozens of desirable parks, from the elegant Alexandra Gardens and Studley Park in Kew, to family friendly Riversdale and Willison parks in Camberwell. Glenferrie Private Hospital, Cabrini Malvern and Epworth in Hawthorn and Camberwell ensure easy access to premium healthcare. Enviably well-serviced by public transport, with multiple train stations, trams, buses, and easy access to the Monash and Eastern Freeways, this municipality has cornered the market on accessibility.
