Kew is a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, 6 km east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Boroondara. At the 2011 Census, Kew had a population of 23,876. Formerly a city in its own right, the cities of Kew, Hawthorn and Camberwell were amalgamated in 1994 to form the City of Boroondara. The suburb borders the Yarra River to the west and north, with Hawthorn to its south and Balwyn to its east.
It is a fairly affluent suburb with most homes being free-standing and surrounded by gardens and tree-lined streets. Most of the properties are of mid-20th century vintage, although there are increasing numbers of new houses being built and (unfortunately) a considerable number of multi-unit and multi-story apartment developments.
