Surrey Hills is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 11 km east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area are the Cities of Boroondara and Whitehorse. At the 2011 census, Surrey Hills had a population of 13,133.
Surrey Hills is a classic leafy eastern suburb,situated eleven kilometres from the city. It was settled in the late 19th century and evolved with slightly smaller blocks and slightly simpler housing than its neighbour Canterbury.
Most of Surrey Hills' streets are lined with now-mature European trees, mostly plane and pin oak, that create the much-lauded leafy look that took nearly a century to achieve.
It is bordered by Elgar Road in the east, Riversdale Road in the south, Union Road in the west and Maroondah Highway in the north. The hills in the suburb's name are most obvious near the corner of Canterbury and Elgar roads, which is also the site of the local water storage reservoir.
