We are a small group of Nillumbikians with
commitment to where we live.
We love it, and want to see
indigenous biodiversity thriving!
We value connections with our diverse community and
we invite you to join us...
The Nillumbik community honours First Nations People, and has a strong and active culture of stewardship of the land, its soils, waterways, indigenous plants and animals.
Nillumbik is a place where conservation, protection and reinvigoration of the natural environment take priority.
Indigenous flora and fauna flourish, and there is a
high level of biodiversity, where waterways and soils are loved.
The community is proud of this shared culture and
guards it fiercely

residents, workers, students and visitors
embrace this identity and
actively contribute to maintaining it.
