Clyde North is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 46 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Casey.

Clyde North is centred on BerwickCranbourne Road and was the original Clyde township before it moved to the area around the railway station to the south.

History[edit]

Clyde Post Office opened on 25 January 1864. In 1915 it was renamed Clyde North, when Clyde Railway Station office was renamed Clyde.[1]

Today[edit]

The area to the west of Berwick – Cranbourne Road is mostly within the Urban Growth Boundary, with a residential development known as "Cascades On Clyde" under construction, having begun in late 2007.

Parks Victoria are also investigating the creation of a new regional park, on land bounded by Berwick – Cranbourne and Thompson Roads.

The area of Clyde North to the east of Berwick – Cranbourne Road is classed as Green wedge land, is distinctly rural in nature, and is outside of the main growth corridor. The land is used in this area for a mixture of market gardening (notably around Pattersons Road) and dairy farming. The land is mainly flat, and most of the roads in the area are dirt roads maintained by the City of Casey.
