Boronia is a residential suburb 29 km east of central Melbourne, immediately north of Ferntree Gully.

Land selections began in the Boronia area in the 1870s, and the Ringwood to Upper Ferntree Gully railway was built in 1889, passing through Boronia, but not providing it with a station. The nearest station was Bayswater, now the immediate city-side neighbour. In 1920 a railway station was opened at Boronia, by when the place name was five years old.
