Melton is a satellite city of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 35 km west from Melbourne’s central business district. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Melton. At the 2006 Census, Melton had a population of 35,490. Statistically, Melton is considered part of Greater Melbourne.
Melton is located approximately 60 km from Geelong and is about 60 km east of Ballarat along the Western Freeway. Rural land to the east of the city experienced rapid growth in the decade since the mid-1990s resulting in the establishment of new suburbs such as Caroline Springs. The city of Melton consists of several suburbs: Brookfield, Kurunjang, Melton, Melton South and West Melton. The Melton railway station is located in Melton South, the second biggest suburb in the city.
The city is named after Melton Mowbray in the United Kingdom, a place famous for hunting and coursing. Several early settlers ran hounds on their properties, which were also venues for hunt clubs.
During its early history the city benefited from traffic passing through it on the way to the Ballarat gold fields during the 1850s gold rush. The Post Office opened on 1 March 1856.
The area was declared a satellite city in 1974 and a green belt existed between it and the urban area of Melbourne until the late 1990s.
Many shops, sporting organisations and community groups in Melton use the designation “Satellite City” in their name.

Active plumbing wasn’t our first effort at getting a plumber but, they were the most responsive. They were here within the hour, ready to go. They were very active in communication, about how far away they were and with wonderful customer service, which I did notice was not common in other plumbing companies. Thank you active plumbing. I would and will be recommending active plumbing to anyone and everyone I know
