About Whitehorse

The City of Whitehorse is located just 15 kilometres east of Melbourne and covers an area of 64 square kilometres. We aspire to be a healthy, vibrant, prosperous and sustainable community supported by strong leadership and community partnerships.

We are a culturally diverse community. In the 2016 Census it was found that 38 per cent of residents were born overseas and one third came from a non-English speaking background.

Whitehorse is characterised by quiet tree-lined residential streets; an abundance of parks, gardens and natural bushland reserves; bustling shopping centres, a diverse range of arts and cultural opportunities; and sports and leisure facilities.

The Whitehorse community has access to an extensive public transport system with trains, trams and buses serving the area. Whitehorse boasts some of the region’s leading educational, medical and leisure facilities and is home to the largest high technology precinct in eastern Melbourne, placing it at the cutting edge of the telecommunications, multimedia and information technology industry.

Council provides more than 100 high quality services and facilities across a range of areas including home and community care; waste and recycling; health and family; leisure facilities; maintenance of sports fields, parks and gardens; infrastructure (operations centre and Whitehorse Recycling and Waste Centre); engineering (planning of roads, drains and streetlights); maintenance of footpaths, drains and roads; arts and culture; planning and building; traffic and community laws; libraries; and business and economic development.
