Ben has had a few party there it's great to have 20 friends come have a great time & leave the mess for them to clean upThanks for your lovely review! We agree, no clean up for you is definitely the upside to having a party at Darkzone. Glad Ben and the boys had a good time! See you next time, Shay

Box Hill Central

Reviewed By Patrick L - Melbourne, Australia

Box Hill Central is "The China Town" in Melbourne's Eastern Suburbs.
It's bigger and has more variety then what you would find in the China Town in Melbourne city.
It has all things Asian and a few cafes serving great laid back Australian cusine as well.
The variety of Asian cusine is stomach boggling and they are all within walking distance from each other.
It is a gastronomic smorgasbord of Asian food.
A must visit for all things Asian in Melbourne.

Box Hill Gardens

Reviewed By Patrick L - Melbourne, Australia

This is an absolutely serene place to be in in all the hustle and bustle of Box Hill, Box Hill Central and Box Hill Hospital.
The Gardens are beautiful even in the winter and there's ample space and benches all around.
Good place to relax, be on your own or just collect your thoughts.

The Box Hill Miniature Steam Railway

Reviewed By JohnG3121 - Greater Melbourne, Australia

Check website for opening times because doesn't open much. It's staffed by enthusiastic and passionate volunteers . They have tiny railway carriages that have been built by members over the years. The railway track runs a scenic course and it's a fun affordable way to spend the day. When I went rides were only $3. Well worth a visit.

Bushy Creek Parklands

Reviewed By JohnG3121 - Greater Melbourne, Australia

Running between Elgar Park (on Elgar rd) and nice playground opposite Springfield park on Dorking Rd. At the Elgar Park end it connects with the fantastic Koonung Creek trail. From Elgar Park you come to Elgar rd past the fun Box hill miniature railway. On the other side of Elgar rd there is ample parking. The next highlight is the remnant bushland at the vast Memorial Park on station st. The trail ends at a great little playground at Dorking Rd. At this location you also have the greenlink plant nursery which unfortunately is only open a few days a week. Another feature at this end are the quirky art installations.

Artists Park

Reviewed By JohnG3121 - Greater Melbourne, Australia

A bit off the main rd which makes it more peaceful. Situated at the back of the box hill south community centre. The tree cover makes this a great shaded area to bring the kids or read a book. I recommended you visit the Fifty birds cafe before or after your visit.
