Ronnie Biggs in 1970, the English fugitive arrived in Australia while on the run from the UK authorities for his part in the Great Train Robbery of 1963. After a stint in Adelaide, he and his family settled in Hibiscus Road, North Blackburn under the assumed name Cook. There the family briefly lived a normal life, before Biggs fled alone to Brazil the day before police raided his house. His now ex-wife Charmaine, and children still reside in Melbourne, albeit not in Blackburn North.

Actor Guy Pearce lived in Fithie Street, Blackburn North in the late 1980s. Pearce appeared in the soap opera Neighbours and has a successful film career. Blackburn North is a suburb in Melbourne, 17km east from Melbourne’s central business district. Its local Government Area is the City of Whitehorse.

North Blackburn is a predominantly residential suburb, with wide green and leafy street and houses on quarter acre blocks. The suburb had its start in the early 1960s, much of it being built on land formerly used as an apple orchard. North Blackburn Shopping Centre was originally known as Old Orchard Shopping Centre for this reason, as is Old Orchard Primary School today. North Blackburn Post Office opened on 2 May 1955 and was renamed Blackburn North around 1990.

No major shopping centre exists in North Blackburn, while it is well served by North Blackburn Shopping Centre on Springfield Road, it is in fact located in Blackburn. The large Westfield Doncaster is in nearby Doncaster.

Centro Box Hill, formerly Box Hill Central and now incorporating the former Centro Whitehorse, can be found in Box Hill. It can be accessed through several busses, which can also be taken in the opposite direction to Eastland Shoppling Centre and other shopping locations.

There are two public primary schools in North Blackburn, Old Orchard Primary School and St. Phillips {Catholic} on Junction Road. Springview Primary School which although is next door to St. Phillips is in neighbouring Nunawading.

On its Northern Boundary is the Eastern Freeway, along which also runs a bicycle track, the Koonung Creek Trail.
