Heidelberg West is a suburb in
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is most notable as the site of the 1956 Summer Olympicsathlete's village. The village was converted into a Housing Commission of Victoriaestate following the conclusion of the games, and in recent years has had properties sold into private hands. In 2006 the suburb was selected for " urban renewal" by the State Government because it suffers from a low socio-economic profile.
