Located 18 km north-west of Melbourne's central business district, Keilor offers a range of enjoyment options. From shopping to stunning parks and outdoor activities such as golf to historic Overnewton Castle, there is plenty to enjoy.

Keilor has a very special feel about it, which is enhanced by its village atmosphere. It is surrounded by natural beauty and is also in a great location with easy access to the Calder Highway, the City and the rest of Brimbank.

It is rich in indigenous history as the Wurundjeri people inhabited the Keilor area for many millennia and it features notable historic buildings like Overnewton Castle and the old Iron Bridge.

In the 1850s Keilor was an important stopover point for people on their travels from Melbourne to the Bendigo goldfields.

There is also a great sense of community. This really shone through during the year-long Keilor 150th celebrations last year that drew over 16,602 Brimbank residents and visitors to Keilor.
