Altona North borders the suburbs of Altona, Brooklyn, Laverton North, Newport, South Kingsville, Williamstown North and Yarraville. It is a robust suburb with some heavy industry such as the Mobil Oil Refinery, yet largely compensated by green space areas including Newport Lakes, Cherry Lake, Altona Lakes Public Golf Course (with driving range) and Kororoit Creek Cycling Trail just to name a few.
There are ample shopping precincts including Altona Gate, Millers Junction and Borrack Square, and as well as some great little shopping strips such as The Circle and Second Avenue where you’ll find a delicious selection of continental goods at the Altona Fresh grocers.
The local sporting complex in Altona North is Paisley Park, housing the Badminton centre, plus the Bayfit Centre which includes a gymnasium, swimming pool, premier league soccer facility, bowling club, miniature railway and lacrosse fields.

- Altona North Primary School
