The Electoral district of Yuroke is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It is situated in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne and was created in a redistribution before the 2002 state election, replacing the abolished electorate of Tullamarine.

Included within its boundaries are Attwood, Craigieburn, Greenvale, Kalkallo, Mickleham and Yuroke, as well as parts of Roxburgh Park, Somerton, and Westmeadows.

It is considered to be a very safe Australian Labor Party seat.
