Laverton is one of Meblourne’s western Suburbs

Laverton is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria. Located 17 km south-west from Melbourne’s central business district. Its Local Government Area are the Cities of Hobsons Bay and Wyndham. Laverton has a population of 4508, as calculated at the 2006 Census.

Laverton history starts in 1886, when sale of land in the suburb was promoted by Staples Wise and Company. The first station to be opened beyond Newport on the way to Geelong was Laverton Station, in the same year. Laverton Post Office opened on 9 April 1888. Today the Aircraft station that is nearby, named from the Williams RAAF base, opened in 1921, seven years after a base was established at Point Cook.

In the 1950s a second primary school was built in Laverton, having over 900 students in 1966. Two more primary schools and a high school were established around this time.
There is a police station located right near the railway station.

Shopping in Laverton is very limited. The shopping strip north of Laverton Station now has few operating businesses and is almost deserted after a long period of decline. Basic needs are catered for at Aviation Road (near Aircraft Station), which contains basic services such as a supermarket, fast food, clothing and real estate. Otherwise most people go out of the suburb to shop, particularly to the Central Square Shopping Centre at neighbouring Altona Meadows.

In 1997 Port Phillip Prison, the main maximum security prison in Victoria, was opened in neighbouring Truganinia.
