Area overview

We acknowledge and recognise the Traditional Owners of the land within the regional area, being the Wurundjeri People.

The Northern Metropolitan region stretches from the inner city suburbs of Brunswick, Northcote, Alphington and Ivanhoe, to Craigieburn and Sunbury, and the Kinglake National Park, including the rural and interface communities of Whittlesea and St Andrews.

The region features Melbourne’s major airport, arts and cultural precincts, the Latrobe National Employment and Innovation Cluster, and new growth areas on the city's northern fringe.

Northern Metropolitan has a growing, diverse and skilled population, and the capacity to support highly skilled, knowledge-intensive sectors, including innovation in food production and advanced manufacturing.

There are major industrial areas along the Hume Highway, and in Thomastown and Campbellfield.

Opportunities

Northern Metropolitan communities and the Northern Metropolitan Partnership have identified a need for:

  • investment to diversify and grow the local economy
  • investment to help young people train to become work ready, and to connect them with employers and mentors.
