  • Hume City Council

    Hume City Council is one of Australia's fastest-growing and culturally-diverse communities and is home to more than 180,000 residents. Spanning a total area of 504 square kilometres, the City is located in Melbourne’s northern fringe, just 15 kilometres from the centre of Melbourne. The City's rich history stretches back over 40,000 years, when the indigenous communities of the Gunung-Willam-Balluk first inhabited the region. Today, Hume residents come from more than 166 different countries and speak over 120 languages - with two out of every five residents speaking a language other than English. Hume is built around the established suburbs of Broadmeadows, Tullamarine and Gladstone Park in the south, the developing residential suburbs of Craigieburn, Greenvale and Roxburgh Park in the north-east and the Sunbury township in the north-west. It is made up of a vibrant mix of contrasts including new and established residential areas, major industrial and commercial precincts and vast expanses of rural areas and parkland. The Melbourne International Airport accounts for 10 per cent of the total area of Hume City. The municipality was formally created in 1994 to incorporate sections of the former Shire of Bulla, City of Broadmeadows, City of Whittlesea and City of Keilor. Hume is also home to major road transit routes including the Tullamarine Freeway, Western Ring Road, Hume Highway and the Craigieburn Bypass and is abutted by the Calder Freeway to the west. Hume is bound by the local government areas of Moreland, Whittlesea, Brimbank, Macedon Ranges, Melton and Mitchell. Hume City Council consists of eleven councillors who represent more than 180,000 people across three wards – Aitken Ward, Meadow Valley Ward and Jacksons Creek Ward.

  • Australian Native Orchids

    Australia has a large range of native Orchids. Their status ranges from common, rare, threatened, endangered and some are even very close to extinction. Due to the fragile existence of some of these species the exact locations unfortunately cannot be given. If you come across and add any pictures of endangered specimens please keep their exact location private. (The location of any endangered/threatened species discovered should be reported to The Department of Sustainability and Environment in your state) Please feel free to add any and all of your native orchid pictures so that we can build a database of what is out there before some of them disappear forever
