Broadmeadows Hume global learning centre image

Broadmeadows is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 16 km (9.9 mi) north-west from Melbourne’s central business district. Its local government area is the City of Hume. At the 2016 Census, Broadmeadows had a population of 11,970.

Broadmeadows is a sub-regional centre within the northern suburbs of Melbourne, and is often used as a reference for the suburbs around it, although this may be due to its former status as a municipality.

Broadmeadows’ centre was altered when the railway line and station were opened two kilometres to the original centre’s east in 1872. Shire loyalties clung to the old township until new civic offices were built near the railway station in 1928.

A later Broadmeadows East office, near Widford Street to the southeast of the station, opened in 1961, was renamed Broadmeadows South in 1969, and also remains open.
