Hazelwood North is a locality in Victoria, Australia. It has a population of 1220 (as of the 2006 census).
Former local hero Tom Hayes, who died in a 1982 plane crash in a potato field in Thorpdale, with companion Joel Mason.
Hazelwood North is so named due to its geographical orientation from the town "Hazelwood" - Now known as Churchill, Victoria. Composed of mostly five acre blocks, the district functions primarily as a commuter town for those working in the nearby regional centres of Morwell and Traralgon. Historically the area was used by graziers and small-scale farmers.
The district is served by the public Hazelwood North Primary School [Tom Hayes Jr., school captain 2012], and the Hazelwood North town hall. Both of which are located along Church Road, which runs through the district's centre. The area is somewhat prone to bush and grass fires during the summer months, and was the scene of a relatively small outbreak during the 2009 black saturday bushfires. The Hazelwood North Fire Brigade, a volunteer brigade administered by the Country Fire Authority serves the area.
