Heidelberg West is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is most notable as the site of the 1956 Summer Olympics athlete's village. The village was converted into a Housing Commission of Victoria estate 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.

At the 2006 census, it had a population of 5097.

The Mall

The Suburb is home to The Mall Shopping centre. The Mall is an open style shopping centre constructed during the 1950's which features an IGA supermarket as well as a Blockbuster Video store and Subway take away store. The centre is to be redeveloped as a part of the urban renewal plan. Across from The Mall is an Aldi supermarket along with a Priceline Pharmacy , TAB and about 3 stores. This is not the only retail in the area as there is a shopping strip at the end of Bell Street including several car and motorbike dealers plus a McDonald's fast food outlet. It is also close to Northland Shopping Centre in nearby Preston, Victoria.

O.V.P.S.

Olympic Village Primary School is a small primary school for children from the Heidelberg West area. The principal is Ms. Libby Young.

The Darebin Creek

Darebun Creek (and the surrounding parklands) acts as Heidelberg West's main public open space. This greenspace is in contrast to the urban parts of Heidelberg West is mainly high-density housing and development.

Repat Hospital

Heidelberg West is home to the Austin Hospital (Repatriation Campus) which is going to be redeveloped soon as a part of the Victorian State Government 'Healthier Victoria' plan. The suburb also includes Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE and is nearby to La Trobe University.
