About Us

About Cardinia Shire is one of the fastest growing regions of metropolitan Melbourne. Located 45 kilometres east of Melbourne CBD, the Shire extends from the Dandenong Ranges in the north to Westernport Bay in the south. It comprises rapidly growing residential areas and rural farmland accessed by Monash Freeway and Princes Highway. Its features include significant wetlands, densely vegetated rolling hills, plains and swamps. It also includes unique Aboriginal cultural landscapes used by the Bunurong people until early explorers and settlers opened up the land for farming and agricultural development. Post-war soldier settlement farming, orchards and residential expansion saw the growth of existing townships which continue to accelerate as the population grows and demand for housing and jobs increase. Our Vision Cardinia Shire is recognised as a place that fosters community wellbeing, local identity and community cohesion through participation and creation of a dynamic arts and culture environment. Cardinia Shire is a rapidly changing and diverse community with a combination of rural townships and areas of high population growth. The development of Council's first Arts and Culture Policy, and associated documents, is a timely opportunity to examine the issues facing the local arts and cultural sector and wider community, in order to continue to shape Cardinia Shire as a community that supports, creates and celebrates art and cultural vitality and diversity.
