Narre Warren North is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 36 km south-east of Melbourne's Central Business District, located within the City of Casey local government area. Narre Warren North recorded a population of 8,033 at the 2021 census.[1]


Before the construction of the Gippsland railway line, Narre Warren North was actually the location of the Narre Warren township. The construction of Narre Warren railway station, however, moved the township 2 km to the south, as happened with Upper Beaconsfield, Clyde North and many other townships.

Reflecting this, Narre Warren Post Office opened on 21 January 1869 and in 1900 was renamed Narre Warren North, and Narre Warren Railway Station office (open since 1886) was renamed Narre Warren.[2]

The last few years[when?] has seen massive growth in housing in the South East Corridor with new housing estates moving northwards from Narre Warren. The realignment of Hallam - Belgrave Road in the late 1970s bypassed the township and so it has retained a country atmosphere. However, despite the bypassing of the town, in recent years[when?], extensive subdivision has taken place throughout the grazing lands. This has increased the number houses nearly a hundredfold.

Small areas of the town were damaged during the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009 which burnt along the Troups creek towards Narre Warren East and Harkaway.[citation needed]

Narre Warren North used to be a prominent dairy farming community.[citation needed]


Main Street runs from A'Beckett Road to Tom Jones Court. Claire Robinson park is bound by Main Street, Heatherton Rd and Memorial Drive. The slanted park is used for events such as the annual Carols By Candlelight. Further north-east along Main street is the town plaza containing an IGA supermarket. Opposite the plaza is Winters Lane which contains the preschool and primary school, as well as access to the local tennis club. Since 2009, land has been cleared to extend construction of a housing estate opposite the plaza.[citation needed]


The town contains Narre Warren North Primary School and an adjacent preschool, and a catholic primary school; Mary Mackillop Primary School located on Ernst Wanke Road. Secondary school students usually attend schools in the surrounding areas of Endeavour Hills, Berwick or Narre Warren. A new Catholic primary school has commence construction[when?] on the corner of A'beckett Road and Belgrave-Hallam Road with students are expected to commence classes in 2017.[needs update]

During recent years[when?], the population of the town has increased dramatically. The largest development is currently along Crawley Road, with blocks ranging from 0.3 to 1 acre.
