Hillside is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 23 km north-west of Melbourne's Central Business District, located within the Cities of Brimbank and Melton local government areas. Hillside recorded a population of 17,056 at the 2016 Census. There is another Hillside in Victoria, a small rural district near Bairnsdale.
The suburb was previously known as Sydenham, however its name was changed to Hillside approximately 18 years ago.[clarification needed]. It has estates with names of Cypress Rise, Banchory Grove, Parkwood Green, Bellevue Hill, Sugargum Estate, Hillside 2000 and Regency Rise. A large water tower (known as "The Golf Ball" by locals) exists in the estate of The Bellevue, which can be seen from several kilometres around and, along with the large radio transmission towers in nearby Delahey, is a major landmark of the outer north-western suburban area.
The streets of Hillside are lined with plane trees, which were planted during the farming days of Hillside. The terrain has a slight slope going up the main street.
