Ringwood East is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 25 km east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Maroondah. At the 2011 Census, Ringwood East had a population of 9,748.
It is located in the "Green Belt" of Melbourne, with a lot of native trees and wildlife preserved in areas such as Wombalono Park and its surrounding suburban streets.
The access to high performing public schools, such as Ringwood Secondary College, as well as renowned private schools Tintern Girls Grammar and Aquinas College, is leading to high demand for housing in Ringwood East. The area is now being seen as a real life-style option by people who may have previously looked to areas, such as Balwyn and Camberwell, for quality schools.
Ringwood East has its own railway station and is a Zone 2 station on the Lilydale railway line.
Ringwood East Post Office opened around 1902, in what was then a rural area, before the railway station opened in 1925.
