Burnside Heights is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 21 km north-west of Melbourne's Central Business District, located within the City of Melton local government area. Burnside Heights recorded a population of 6,072 at the 2016 Census.

Burnside Heights is separated from the suburb of Burnside to the south by Kororoit Creek and Caroline Springs.

Burnside Heights, although a young suburb, is well established, with nearby schools, medical centres, a kindergarten, a gymnasium and an AFL & cricket oval. Burnside Heights has several large shopping centres in close proximity, including Watergardens and Brimbank Central. Its major draw card is its close proximity (500 meters) to Caroline Springs CBD which is a major activity centre for the area. In December 2010 the Watervale Shopping Centre was established within the suburb.

Burnside Heights heights was developed from the creations of three developers under the names of Vic Urban (Tenterfield), Triton Property Group (Taylors Park Estate) and Sunlands (Arbour on the Park). Burnside Heights was renamed from Burnside when the developers at the time sought to distinguish from the older part.


Railway stations closest to Burnside Heights are the Keilor Plains and Watergardens railway stations, and the newly created Caroline Springs railway station, which are 4 minutes and 8 minutes driving distance respectively.
