Sassafras is a locality and township within Greater Melbourne beyond the Melbourne metropolitan area Urban Growth Boundary. The area was named Sassafras Gully, after the trees which grew in the area. The land was opened to small scale farming in 1893 and a small township developed.

Sassafras has many exotic flora largely due to the fertile volcanic soils. Most private land contains exotic flora which includes weeds. (Source: Wiki)
