Bellfield is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 9 km north-east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Banyule. At the 2016 Census, Bellfield had a population of 1,793.

Bellfield is bounded in the west by the Darebin Creek, in the north by Bell Street, in the east by Waterdale Road and in the south by Banksia Street.

Bellfield is primarily residential but includes the Banyule Waste Recovery Centre on Waterdale Road and sporting fields in Ford Park and Liberty Park Reserve on Banksia Street, towards Darebin Creek.

Bellfield Cricket Club has represented the suburb in the Heidelberg District Cricket Association since 1934 and is based at Ford Park.

Public Library service is provided by Yarra Plenty Regional Library. The nearest library is Ivanhoe Library or the mobile library stop at Heidelberg West.

In 2012 the City of Banyule acquired part of the former Banksia LaTrobe Secondary College in Bellfied which has been decommissioned. It was purchased to allow for high-end residential infill development and also enable revenue to be generated for Council. The Bellfield Urban Design Guidelines were developed and adopted by Council in February 2019.[2]
