The school is located in a residential area in the City of Whitehorse in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and within walking distance of Blackburn Station and close to bus access. The Blackburn North Shopping Centre is immediately east of the school and opposite are extensive sports facilities and bushland reserves. Also in close proximity is the environmentally attractive Blackburn Lake and an increasing number of local businesses are within easy walking distance.
Blackburn High School is surrounded by several primary schools and has developed curriculum links with them. Along with five local primary schools it forms the Blackburn Innovation and Excellence Cluster. While a majority of our students enrol from the local area, a significant number come to the school via public transport specifically motivated by the academic nature of the school and the outstanding music program.
