Macleod has a below average violent crime rate and a below average property crime rate for Melbourne.


Macleod is an affordable suburb of Melbourne, Victoria. Only 14 kilometers from Melbourne CBD, this leafy suburb has the very best of Melbourne right at its fingertips.

Macleod Station, freeways, bus routes and bike paths whisk residents away to the shops in Melbourne CBD. And residents enjoy a handful of local amenities that include a post office, grocery store, bookstore, and a YMCA.

Macleod features first class schools, lush nature reserves, beautiful parks, and premium golf courses.  The Yarra River and its terrific running and biking trails are just a short walk (or ride) away.

The streets are lined with trees and affordable houses that attract families and suburban loving singles. The rental market is healthy, but available rentals go fast so interested renters should keep a close eye on vacancies in this beautiful suburb.

Macleod is bordered on the north by Watsonia, on the east by Yallambie and Viewbank, on the south by Rosanna, and on the west by Bundoora.
