Live, work, play and shop in Nillumbik

This winter, we’re inviting people to experience the very best of the region. Between May and August, a range of weekly giveaways of unique and special experiences are on offer via @VisitNillumbik on Facebook and Instagram.

A ‘Shop in our Shire’ campaign is also under way, that encourages residents to buy local this winter. From clothing to homewares, cafes and restaurants to a range of different services, everything you need is right here in our Shire.

'Shop in our Shire' puts the spotlight on local businesses and their online presence. We’ll be promoting your social media accounts and supporting you to continue to offer online shopping options, which many businesses explored for the first time when the pandemic hit.

For Nillumbik-based businesses wanting an opportunity to have their business promoted for free on our @VisitNillumbik Facebook and Instagram social media pages please complete this form

This opportunity is ongoing and will remain active until further notice.
