The Division of Batman is an Australian Electoral Division in Victoria. It was created in 1906 and replaced the Division of Northern Melbourne. It takes its name from John Batman, one of the founders of the city of Melbourne. At first it covered the inner suburbs of Carlton and Fitzroy, but as the boundaries have been changed it has moved north. It now includes Alphington, Clifton Hill , Northcote, Preston, Reservoir and Thornbury.
