Knoxfield 3180

Knoxfield is a residential and commercial/industrial suburb 27 km. east-south-east of Melbourne, lying between Scoresby and Ferntree Gully. It was named shortly after the Knox shire was formed in 1963 by severance from Fern Tree Gully shire. The shire was named after Sir George Knox, a long-time Parliamentary representative and Speaker of the Victorian Legislative Assembly, 1942-7.

When first formed Knoxfield had about 400 residents on semi-suburban subdivisions. By 1970 the estimated population was 4,000.

Burwood Highway crosses Knoxfield near its northern boundary. Along the highway are Knox City shopping centre and the Knox municipal Offices (just east of Knoxfield) and the Institute for Horticultural Development, a reminder of the district's agricultural and market-garden origins. Knoxfield's southern boundary is Ferntree Gully Road, backing on to flat water-way lands which contain Unifoods (formerly Rosella foods), a paper/packaging manufacturer, a grocery warehouse and other industries.

Between those areas there is extensive housing with two State primary schools, a State secondary school and a Catholic school. About central to the suburb there are recreation reserves, including sports ovals and a lake. There are also three reserves with sports facilities along Ferntree Gully Road. The waterway at the southern extremity provides an extensive linear reserve.

The median house prices in Knoxfield were about 95% of the median for metropolitan Melbourne in 1987 and 1996.
