Accessibility and Connectivity

Public Transport

Box Hill is located less than 15 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD with many transportation options.

Box Hill is well served by public transport which plays an important role for commuter travel. The focus of the public transport network through the centre of Whitehorse is the Belgrave/ Lilydale railway line, which is augmented by tram and bus routes along key arterial routes.

Box Hill has train, tram and bus access and connectivity. See Public Transport Victoria to plan your journey and be updated with service information.


Box Hill is strategically positioned to take the connective advantage through the Eastern Freeway and Eastlink, providing access to the CBD, Melbourne Airport, and the Yarra Valley wine and tourism region in the east and Melbourne’s Bayside and Mornington Peninsula region in the south.

Cycling and Walking

Whitehorse has some fantastic walking tracks and bike routes. Council’s  Walking and Wheeling Guide highlights some of the wonderful parks and walking tracks within the municipality. The guide includes information on required levels of fitness, disability access, general facilities, and lists the location of some of the BMX tracks, mountain bike tracks, skate parks and playgrounds in Whitehorse.
