Live Out Your Perpetual Holiday in Christmas Hills, Melbourne

Located less than an hour away from Melbourne’s Central Business District is the picturesque Christmas Hills suburb.  It is situated within the local government area of the Shire of Nillumbik, and it lies between Kangaroo Ground and Yarra Glen along the Eltham-Yarra Glen Road (State Route C726).

The area is named after David Christmas, a shepherd who got lost on a grazing lease within and was found wandering several days after.  It has a rich mining history owing to a brief gold rush that lasted from the mid-19th through to the early 20th century.

It is well maintained and home to several nature reserves, including One Tree Hill Reserve and Sugarloaf Reservoir Park.  The parks are filled with valuable flora and fauna endemic to the region like the large bent-wing bat, the wedge-tailed eagle, and the barking owl.
