Ringwood is a residential suburb 23 km east of Melbourne, situated on the Maroondah Highway and the Lilydale/Belgrave railway line.

The precursor of the Maroondah Highway was the track to the Gippsland and Upper Goulburn gold fields, via Lilydale, and before that the track to Gippsland's pastoral runs. A Log Cabin Inn was opened in 1850 for travellers at the future site of Ringwood. Timber getters and paling splitters were the first European occupants of the district.
