Suburb profile: The Basin, VIC 3154

The Basin is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 31 km east of Melbourne's Central Business District, located within the City of Knox local government area.

A tree-lined suburb, nestled at the foothills of the Dandenongs with views of both the National Park and the City of Melbourne. There are also nature reserves and extensive bikes paths and lanes.

Prior to European settlement, The Basin and surrounding suburbs were often visited by the Bunurong and Yarra Yarra people—hunting in the summer months in the Dandenong Ranges and its foothills. The Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation are the acknowledged traditional custodians of the land on which The Basin and all of City of Knox is located.

The Basin forms one of Melbourne's "green wedges" and is nestled into the forest covered foothills of Mount Dandenong and the Dandenong Ranges National Park, including Doongalla Forest. This was formerly part of the Doongalla Estate, purchased by Sir Matthew Davies in 1891. The residential development of the suburb includes bushy parks such as Wicks Reserve and some farmland.

Mountain Highway runs through The Basin to Sassafras. It is a challenging and popular cycling route for people in Melbourne. The Basin-Olinda Road is a mostly unsealed road that leads to the mountain town of Olinda. Bus route 755 runs from The Basin to local train stations at Bayswater, Boronia and Ferntree Gully.

Offering three popular Primary Schools within a short distance and one secondary school sitting within The Basin boundaries and there are two local pre-schools.

There are various shops and restaurants fronting two sides of The Basin Triangle, amidst a village atmosphere. Retail outlets include a gym, a licensed post office, two pubs, cafés, milk bar, liquor store, greengrocer, jeweller, butcher, bookstore, restaurants, hairdressing salons, fish and chips, and bicycle shop.

One of the major selling points of The Basin is the leafiness and community feel. With small popular eateries, local playgrounds and bike tracks this small suburb makes everyone feel at home!
