The inner Melbourne suburb of Darebin commences approximately 4kms to the north of Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD) and extends a further 10kms to the north. It borders the Cities of Yarra to the south, Whittlesea to the north, Moreland to the west and Banyule to the east.

The City of Darebin covers approximately 53 square kilometres. With over 128,000 residents and 55,000 properties, it contains one of the largest and most diverse communities in the State. The City includes the established and historic suburbs of Northcote, Alphington, Fairfield, Thornbury, and extends to Preston, Reservoir, and the recently developed areas of Kingsbury and Bundoora North East Growth Corridor.

The Darebin Parklands are located in an area that includes both Alphington and Ivanhoe, approximately 10 kilometres northeast of the City of Melbourne. They form a district park covering an area of thirty three (33) hectares. They are one of the most important attractions in the City of Darebin and provide a touch of wilderness in the midst of the City.
