About Banyule City Council

The Banyule City Council is a local government area in Victoria, Australia in the north-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. It has an area of 63 square kilometres (24.3 sq mi) and lies between 7 and 21 km from central Melbourne. At the 2016 Census, Banyule had a population of 121,865. The Yarra River runs along the City’s south border while the west is defined by the Darebin Creek.

The area was originally occupied by the Wurundjeri, Indigenous Australians of the Kulin nation, who spoke variations of the Woiwurrung language group.
Banyule is the birthplace of the Heidelberg School of Art, which was formed when a group of artists, including Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Frederick McCubbin, Walter Withers, Charles Conder and others moved to a shack on Mount Eagle (now known as Eaglemont) and began painting the landscape in a uniquely Australian way during the late 1880s.

The City moved their main offices from Ivanhoe to Greensborough in 2017 with council meetings remaining at the old Heidelberg Town Hall for historical reasons.
