About our school
Bundoora Primary School is situated in the residential suburb of Bundoora, in the north-east of Melbourne. Our school is surrounded by Gresswell Forest, established areas, the adjacent Bundoora Secondary College campus, Strathallan Golf Course and the new Gresswell Grange Estate. We are close to La Trobe University, RMIT Bundoora and the Metropolitan Ring Road.
