Avondale Heights is a suburb 12 km north-west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Moonee Valley. At the 2006 Census, Avondale Heights had a population of 11,074.
The suburb derives its name from the Avondale Estate. Originally known as Maribyrnong West, when the Council undertook to change the name, postal authorities drew attention to the existence of Avondale in Queensland. The suburb was therefore called Avondale Heights to distinguish it from the Queensland town.
There is only one main road - Military Road which runs from Canning Street and Maribyrnong Road, then becomes Milleara Road. There are about 40 shops at the Canning Street end and 20 at the other end, near the St Martin De Porres Primary School.
