In 2011, Council commissioned an environmental history of the City of Boroondara, which explores the history of development in Boroondara since European settlement.
The Thematic Environment History provides the context for future heritage studies and assessments and its themes show how key patterns of development have influenced and shaped the City including the natural and built environment.
It was prepared by heritage consultants Built Heritage Pty Ltd and the final History was adopted by Council in December 2011.
Note: this document does not address aspects of the City of Boroondara's Aboriginal heritage. For more information on this topic, please see Indigenous Heritage.
