The Northern suburbs include a large area of Melbourne. Melbourne International Airport is located here in Tullamarine, so the suburbs will be the gateway into Melbourne for many.

- Moonee Ponds
- Oak Park

The three main rail corridors through Melbourne's north are the Craigieburn, South Morang and Upfield lines. Tram lines also radiate from the city, better servicing the inner suburbs than those further out. Buses fill the spaces in between.
- Woodlands Historic Park. Immediately north of Melbourne Airport, contains an 1840s homestead and a nature reserve.
Some suburbs in the north have a notorious reputation for crime. You should be careful of your belongings, and avoid travel during the night. There should be no issues during the day. You should exert the most caution in the suburb of Broadmeadows, and around train stations.
