SUMMER IN YARRAMBAT

Yarrambat is a town in Victoria, Australia, 23.5 km north-east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Nillumbik. At the 2011 Census, Yarrambat had a population of 1,511.Yarrambat is located within Greater Melbourne, beyond the Melbourne metropolitan area Urban Growth Boundary.

Prominent as a gold mining area in the late 19th century, much of the land was surveyed and cleared for farming once the mining boom subsided. Recently land has been allowed to be subdivided into 1 hectare allotments by the Shire of Nillumbik, with large prestige homes dotting the landscape. Yarrambat has become one of Melbourne's affluent north eastern suburbs due to many of its properties being constructed on large allotments within relatively close proximity to the City.
