Hillside is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 23 km north-west of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Brimbank and Shire of Melton. At the 2011 Census, Hillside had a population of 16,326. There is another Hillside in Victoria, a small rural district near Bairnsdale.

The suburb was created only recently and it is still a developing area. It has estates with names of Cypress Rise, Banchory Grove, Parkwood Green, Bellevue Hill, Sugargum Estate, Hillside 2000 and Regency Rise. A large water tower (known as the "The Golf Ball" by locals) exists in the estate of The Bellevue, which can be seen from several kilometres around, and along with the large radio transmission towers between in nearby Delahey, it is a major landmark of the outer northwestern suburban area.

The streets of Hillside are lined with plane trees, which were planted during the farming days of Hillside. The terrain of Hillside has a slight slope going up the main street.

Sport [edit]

Sydenham Hillside Football Club, an Australian Rules football team, competes in the Essendon District Football League.[2]
