Things to See and Do in Blackburn

Blackburn takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne and into a quaint suburb of families picnicking by the Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, locals grabbing their morning coffee at one of the whole in the wall cafes and kids running amok at the Surrey Dive playground. Did we mention there's a Chocolate Workshop? An absolute must for a delicious sugar hit! 

Once you scratch the surface of Blackburn you'll discover it's an area with an interesting history. It was settled by Europeans in 1840 as a small farm area and in 1889 a manmade lake was created, today known as the Blackburn Lake Sanctuary. And any local will tell you it's the heart of this laidback suburb. 

While Blackburn's a great spot for a relaxing day or two, if you've got more time to play with make sure you cruise to the Melbourne CBD and see why this city has been dubbed Australia's coolest place by countless visitors each year.
