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. At the 2016 Census, Clyde North had a population of 8,157.[1]


Clyde Post Office opened on 25 January 1864. In 1915 it was renamed Clyde North, when Clyde Railway Station office was renamed Clyde.[2]


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" and several others, 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 the newly built suburban area, roughly 1 kilometre 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.

Clyde North has since expanded and has many new estates. Selandra Rise which borders Cranbourne East has now been sold out and also now has a local shopping centre within the estate. Since the completion there have been a number of estates commence within the Clyde North area which have been listed below:

a new lifestyle centre was recently opened in late 2019, with a Bunnings Warehouse as the first store, followed by a few others, and now even contains an Aldi supermarket. not all spaces in the centre have been filled yet though.
