Melbourne Suburbs

How many of Melbourne's suburbs can you name? The suburbs in this quiz are current as of June 2020.
Suburbs only include gazetted localities within the contiguous metropolitan area of Melbourne and contain families living in urban environments. Localities including Ravenhall, Somerton and Moorabbin Airport are excluded for these reasons.
Each section is divided by local government area in ascending order of proximity to Flinders Street Station.
The suburbs within each section are ordered alphabetically.
Duplicates between local government areas are removed and suburbs are allocated by the largest portion of the suburbs' areas.

Fantastic quiz! Would be great, though difficult I'd imagine, for someone to make an equivalent quiz for Sydney (said by a true Sydneysider!)

I got 52/339. I can't imagine actually being able to name all 339. I can only really do Kingston, Bayside and other random suburbs!

Only reason I scored 26 was because I know the AFL and some VFL teams. Great Quiz though! Wish this type of Quiz existed for Brisbane.

Excellent quiz, quite difficult too. It is missing a few suburbs, namely the new suburbs in the West.

Aintree, Bonnie Brook, Cobblebank, Deanside, Diggers Rest, Grangefields, Harkness, Kurunjang, Melton, Melton South, Mount Atkinson, Strathtulloh, Sunbury, Tarneit Plains, Thornhill Park, Weir Views would be inside the UGB. They were not listed. Prolly a few others as well that I cannot remember at the moment.

As mentioned elsewhere, the UGB isn't a particularly useful definition of Metropolitan Melbourne given that it would have to include various gazetted localities that you would be fairly hard-pressed to call suburbs of Melbourne. As defined by Planning Victoria themselves: "The urban growth boundary (UGB) indicates the long-term limits of urban development and where non-urban values and land uses should prevail in metropolitan Melbourne". This is why is have only included suburbs that are part of a contiguous growth and have urban housing. I think it's good to stick to strict guidelines of what is and isn't part of Metropolitan Melbourne otherwise you run into the meme of "well Bacchus Marsh is part of Melbourne, nah actually Albury is part of Melbourne, nah actually Sydney is part of Melbourne." As a good example, I recently added Manor Lakes and Mickleham as the contiguous growth extending from Wyndham Vale and Greenvale respectively has extended that far.

That's fair to some extent. What's your thoughts on Mambourin? It's recently started to develop (due to contiguous growth from Wyndham Vale) but I'm guessing it's not far enough through yet for inclusion?
+1
Level 35
Jun 30, 2020
That's a great question. Mambourin is very soon to be included once it is populated and the suburb boundary does not change. There's a chance there might be another Greenvale/Yuroke problem of the boundary slowly being extended west to accommodate growth. In any case, I'm keeping a watchful eye over that whole Wyndham Vale region!

Also, if you're interested, I am in the process of updating the quiz to accommodate the new-ish boundaries for City of Melton since Fraser Rise now exists and Plumpton has been pushed further out.
