Ivanhoe is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 10 km north-east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Banyule. At the 2016 Census, Ivanhoe had a population of 12,171.


Ivanhoe Post Office opened on 1 September 1874. Ivanhoe North Post Office, on Waterdale Road near Banksia Street opened on 17 May 1926. An Ivanhoe West Post Office was open from 1955 until 1988.[2]


The Yarra River forms the southern boundary of the suburb, with a golf course and a narrow riparian strip reserve. Darebin Creek runs along the western boundary of the suburb.

Upper Heidelberg Road Commercial Centre

Upper Heidelberg Road is the suburb's centre and the location of the former Heidelberg Town Hall, now known as The Centre Ivanhoe. The town hall is a classic 'art-deco' building on top of a hill, with a green neon clockface on a tower. Due to historical considerations, the town hall continues to host Banyule City Council meetings notwithstanding their main offices moving to Greensborough in 2017.[3]


The suburb has two railway stations; Ivanhoe, which is located in the Zone 1 and 2 overlap of the public transport system and Darebin, wholly within Zone 1, is also located in the suburb.


The suburb hosts two prestigious private schools; Ivanhoe Grammar School and Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School. It is also home to one of Victoria's oldest state schools, Ivanhoe Primary School, established in 1853.
