Tullamarine is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 17 km north-west of Melbourne’s central business district. It is split between three local government areas—the cities of Brimbank, Hume and Moreland. At the 2016 census, Tullamarine had a population of 6,605.
The suburb is a collection of recent housing estates and light industry. Generally flat and exposed to the hot northerly winds of Melbourne’s summer, as well as cold southerly winds in winter, its most notable feature is the nearby Melbourne Airport. Tullamarine’s residential area is contained in a circular loop of the Moonee Ponds Creek, and its western boundary is the Melbourne Airport. Tullamarine contains the smaller residential area of Gladstone Park.
The Albion-Jacana railway line separates Tullamarine from Airport West to the south.
When the land in the Tullamarine Parish was subdivided into farm lots in 1842 only one lot sold, and the rest were sold by selection in 1850.

Tullamarine Post Office opened on 4 March 1859. By 1865 Tullamarine had a hotel and a district population of about 200 persons.
