The 21 suburbs of Banyule City lie on 63 square kilometres between 7 and 21 kilometres north-east of central Melbourne. Banyule's landscape is gently to steeply undulating, apart from some relatively flat land in the west and on the river floodplains. Native vegetation flourishes in the east and north-east, while exotic trees and shrubs dominate the City's southern and western parts.
Banyule City Council recognises the land's habitation by local indigenous people, the Wurundjeri willam. Sacred sites, traditional names and indigenous community contributions are important to our understanding of the region's past, present and future.
The city also has a significant European cultural heritage associated with painters of the Heidelberg School, such as Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Charles Condor, Walter Withers, Jane Price, May Vale and Clara Southern, and architects and urban landscapers including Walter Burley Griffin, Ellis Stones and Edna Walling.
