Local Area Information
Located 35 km west from the Melbourne CBD, Melton is the administrative centre of the City of Melton local government area and its most populous centre.
Melton began as a small town before being declared a satellite city in 1974, separated from Melbourne's urban area by a green wedge. Since the 1990s it experienced rapid suburban growth into surrounding greenfield land and become a commuter town in the Melbourne-Ballarat growth corridor. Changes to Melbourne's urban growth boundary passed by the state government in 2010 effectively relinquished its satellite city status as it is planned to become part of Melbourne's future urban area.
Melton is located on flat, volcanic plains where to the south-east of Melton Township is Mount Cottrell, a blast-shield volcano, and to the north-east of the township is Mount Kororoit.
The City of Melton is well serviced by a train station and various shopping centres including Woodgrove Shopping Centre, which consists of 160 specialty stores.
