A sign saying

Welcome to Nillumbik Shire Council! Congratulations on choosing to live in the happiest shire in Australia.

Our Shire has lush, green open spaces, sports fields and active hiking and cycling trails along with a medley of wineries and boutique restaurants just a stone's throw from Melbourne's CBD.

Nillumbik is unique in that it combines the best of the natural environment with the best that suburban culture and arts can offer.
