Hazelwood North is a locality in Victoria, Australia. It has a population of 1220 (as of the 2006 census).[1]

Max Cranwell, who died in a 2009 plane crash in Papua New Guinea, resided in Hazelwood North until his death.[2]

Nearly exclusively inhabited by graziers and farmers, Hazelwood North is so named due to its geographical orientation from the town "Hazelwood" - Now known as Churchill.

The district is not completely residential however, located along Church Road which runs right through the districts centre, is the state-government run Hazelwood North Primary School, opposite the Hazelwood North Church and Hall - both used by the school for functions and services.
