Attwood is a residential suburb 18 km north-west of central Melbourne. Its southern boundary is the Moonee Ponds Creek, shared with Westmeadows, and its northern neighbour is Greenvale.

The suburb was named after James Attwood who, in 1929, purchased most of the land for farming. He subsequently sold parts of it to the Victoria Police and for inclusion in the Gillibrand State Park east of Attwood.
