Julino Brdo (Serbian Cyrillic: Јулино Брдо) is an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Čukarica.

Julino Brdo is the northernmost tip of Žarkovo neighborhood, located between the neighborhoods of Čukarica in the north, Banovo Brdo in the east and northeast, Žarkovo in the south and Makiš in the west. Population of the neighborhood was 6,683 in 2002.

The neighborhood comprises one circular street surrounded by another three streets closing a triangle around the circle. As Julino Brdo consists of several high skyscrapers on the top of a hill, the neighborhood is clearly visible from lower parts of Belgrade, especially across the Sava river, e.g. (Novi Beograd and Zemun).

There are facilities of Belgrade waterworks constructed in the area (Hydro-technical knot Julino Brdo), including the first above-ground reservoirs for drinking water in Serbia and two tunnels (T-1 and T-1-T2) for water conduction to central Belgrade (Tašmajdan). The expansion of the waterworks facility Makiš-Julino Brdo-Banovo Brdo will encompass two more, larger reservoirs and a new tunnel (T-2) which will conduct water to Košutnjak and Topčider.
