Thornhill Park is a suburb in the outer west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its local government area is the City of Melton. The suburb was gazetted by the Office of Geographic Names on 9 February 2017,[1] following a proposal for eleven new suburbs by the City of Melton. The new name officially came into effect in mid-2017.[2][3]

Prior to the suburb's creation, the area was mostly part of Rockbank, with a small section previously part of Mount Cottrell in the south.


Thornhill Park is currently home to Wiltshire Boulevard Reserve, which contains open space, community facilities and a playground. There are also wetlands present in the north, in between Exmouth Street and the Western Highway.
