Aintree is a suburb in the outer west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its local government area is the City of Melton. The suburb was gazetted by the Office of Geographic Names on 9 February 2017,[1] following a proposal for eleven new suburbs by the City of Melton; the new name officially came into effect in mid-2017.[2][3]

Prior to the suburb's creation, the area was previously part of Rockbank.
