Preston is a Melbourne, Victoria, Australia suburb about 9 kilometres north of the city’s central business district. The City of Darebin is its local government district.

Preston is bounded to the east by Darebin Creek, a small tributary of the Yarra River, and is mostly flat terrain, suitable for farming at first but later for industrial and residential growth.

The initial surplus of land culminated in low density urban development in Preston’s former farmland, but demographic pressures and Preston’s proximity to the Melbourne CBD have resulted in an increasing trend toward medium to high-density urban regeneration.

Preston, as part of the City of Darebin, has a vibrant and dynamic artists and DIY culture that is contemporary, creative, and culturally diverse. Darebin regularly promotes the community’s artistry and diversity through gatherings and activities such as the Darebin Music Feast and the now-defunct High Vibes Festival. The main group Indigenous radio station 3KND is situated on Mary Street in Preston and is entirely run by Aboriginal people.
