Northcote is a residential and industrial suburb 8 km north-east of Melbourne. Until 1994 it was a municipality, bounded on the west by the Merri Creek and on the east by the Darebin Creek. Its northern and southern boundaries adjoined Preston and Fitzroy, Collingwood and Kew respectively.

The land surface of Northcote is a mixture of basaltic and mudstone or clay, the latter having a considerable bearing on Northcote's economic development.
