Europeans first settled the area of Blackburn in the 1840s. The area was densely wooded, though orchards and small farms were soon developed. In 1861 the Traveller's Rest Hotel was built on the current site of the Blackburn Hotel. Blackburn Creek Post Office opened on 10 January 1876 and was renamed Blackburn in 1883.
Blackburn was built around the artificial Blackburn Lake in 1889, now known as Blackburn Lake Sanctuary with the lake in the middle of the sanctuary. This was a popular day trip destination by train in the late nineteenth century. Some Australian artists painted in the bush around the Blackburn and Box Hill areas. Of these, Roberts and McCubbin are the best known. The area is protected by strict planning controls restricting development and has retained a village atmosphere.
Blackburn is 17 km east from Melbourne's CBD and lies within the City of Whitehorse in Melbourne's eastern suburbs with a postcode of 3130. The origin of the name Blackburn is not certain but may have been after an early settler or James Blackburn who designed Yan Yean Reservoir.
Blackburn is bounded in the west by the Middleborough Road, in the north by Springfield Road, in the east by an irregular line along streets to the east of Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, and in the south by Canterbury Road.
The strip shopping centre near the railway line is moderately active and about 600 metres north of the Maroondah Highway there is a drive-in shopping centre, North Blackburn Square.
