Banksia Secondary College is set in the midst of residential streets, surrounded by abundant parks and gardens just 10 kilometres North-East of Melbourne's CBD.
Banksia Secondary College possesses unique facilities, the result of a refurbishment of the former Heidelberg High School at a cost of almost 6 million dollars. Specialist areas from engineering to instrumental music are well served with facilities and equipment. Other facilities include two full sized basketball stadiums, three synthetic grass tennis courts, a horticulture centre, a large canteen and a 203 seat theatre. The College owns and operates a bus. In recent years more and more wall space has been used to display the excellent artwork currently produced by students. The College has led the way in Victoria in use of its facilities by the wider community seven days a week and most nights.
