A Snapshot of Melbourne: Burwood

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy modern suburbia

With just a small population of 13,162, Burwood is a friendly suburb of Melbourne. Bounded by major roads such as Warrigal Road, Riversdale Road and Middleborough Road, Burwood was first settled in 1858 when it was known as Ballyshanassy, and then its name was changed to Norwood before finally being named Burwood in 1879.

Just 17km from the Melbourne CBD, you have the best of both worlds – you’re not too far from the action of the big city, but you’re not too close if you want to enjoy a relaxed and laidback lifestyle. When you want to plan a trip out in the big city, simply catch a tram or train that is only minutes away from your doorstep when you stay at Punthill.
