Suburb features

Bayswater North shares its postcode of 3153 with the adjacent suburb of Bayswater, and the suburb is often referred to by residents without the "North" part of the name. Many local businesses also drop this reference in advertising their location (e.g. large retailer Bunnings Warehouse is located in Bayswater North but refers to its location as "Bayswater"). The official distinction between the two is that Bayswater North is the portion of the postcode area located in the City of Maroondah, whereas Bayswater is located in the City of Knox.

There is a small local shopping centre, Canterbury Gardens, which is anchored by a Woolworths supermarket. The majority of facilities for residents are located in Bayswater, and nearby major commercial centres Knox City and Eastland. A Bayswater North Post Office was open from 1962 until 1964.[3]

Public transport

The nearest railway station is Bayswater Railway Station on the Belgrave railway line, a Premium Station located in Metcard Zone 2. Buses from several companies also service the area, linking residents directly with Bayswater Station, surrounding suburbs, and the retail and commercial precincts of Ringwood, Croydon and the Knox City Shopping Centre.
