About Nillumbik Shire Council:

The Shire of Nillumbik is situated in the outer north-east urban-rural fringe of the metropolitan area, approximately 25 km from Melbourne’s Central Business District. The Shire of Nillumbik is bounded by the Shire of Murrindindi to the north, Shire of Yarra Ranges to the east, the Cities of Manningham and Banyule to the south and the City of Whittlesea to the west.  The southern boundary is bounded by the Yarra River.

The Shire of Nillumbik forms part of the metropolitan ‘green wedge’ a non urban buffer between the urban growth areas of City of Whittlesea and Lilydale.  Much of the shire is rural and is used for a combination of agriculture, rural living and conservation.  Significant natural features and parks are located within the shire including: Kinglake National Park, Plenty Gorge Park, Sugarloaf Reservoir, Yarrambat Park and the network of parks in the Yarra River system. There is a strong community appreciation for the natural environment

Nillumbik’s annual report 2018-2019 highlights Council’s vision is to be ‘Australia’s most liveable shire’ and recent findings from a landmark national research project by Queensland Bond University found that the residents of Nillumbik have the highest overall quality of life in Australia.
