Blackburn North 3130

Blackburn North is a residential area 17 km, east of Melbourne extending from Blackburn to the Koonung Creek.

The rural background to Blackburn North was much like that of Blackburn's. Its residential development came as urbanisation spread from Blackburn. In 1954 the primary school was opened, on the southern border of the area. The Blackburn technical school (now a secondary college), is in Blackburn North, and was opened in 1959. Another primary school on the eastern boundary, Springview, was opened in 1964.

Blackburn North has two small neighbourhood shopping centres and two reserves with ovals or sporting facilities. During the late 1960s/early 1970s the name Beverley Hills was attached to Blackburn North, but it appears now to be located on the other side of Koonung Creek, in Doncaster East where the Beverley Hills primary school (1959) is found.
