Suburb profile: Doreen, VIC 3754

Doreen is located approximately 26 km north-east from Melbourne's CBD.

Patrick Reid settled the area in 1844, calling it "Hazel Glen". The Post Office opened on 8 December 1870 as Hazelglen and was renamed Doreen in 1895.

As of August 2018, there are currently six schools housed within the suburb of Doreen.

  • Hazel Glen College- Prep-10 (however the school plans to teach through to year 12 by 2020)
  • Public St Paul the Apostle Catholic School - Prep–6
  • Laurimar Primary School - Prep–6
  • Doreen Primary School - Prep - 6
  • Plenty Valley Christian College - Prep–12

Doreen is unusual in that the eastern portion in the Shire of Nillumbik remains rural, being contiguous with the rural localities of Yarrambat and Nutfield.

The western portion in the City of Whittlesea is contiguous with the suburbs of Mernda and South Morang and suburban development has proceeded. Yan Yean Road separates the two portions.

Residential development is of two kinds — rural residential estates and nurseries to the south, and a new residential estate, Laurimar, in the north with its emphasis on "semi-rural" living, being developed by Delfin, a subsidiary of Lend Lease Corporation.

Doreen is very green and quite hilly and is surrounded by the foothills of the Yarra Ranges to the east and north and the forested banks of the Plenty River to the west. As part of it being on the urban fringe it has a wide variety of animal life including bird life. To the north is Yan Yean Reservoir, which is the oldest reservoir in Melbourne.
