Craigieburn, an outer residential suburb, was on the Hume Highway 25 km north of central Melbourne until it was bypassed in 2004. The Merri Creek is the eastern boundary of Craigieburn, and it is fed by the Aitken and the Malcolm Creeks from the west.

The name is derived from the Gaelic word Craigie, meaning craggy.
