St Albans is a vibrant and multicultural community in Melbourne’s West with a high number of residents being born overseas and being of non-English speaking backgrounds. The electorate of St Albans covers Ardeer, Albion, Kealba, Keilor Downs, St Albans, Sunshine and Sunshine North and is located approximately 15 kilometres north-west of Melbourne. It totals an area of 35 square kilometres.
St Albans’ natural beauty was largely untouched by settlers until after WWII when there was an influx of migrants looking to call Australia home. This resulted in parklands like Kororoit Creek and Brimbank Park remaining largely untouched till this day.
St Albans has a rich Indigenous history and we acknowledge the Kulin nation of peoples as the traditional owners of the land. The Wurundjeri people were the custodians of the land in the Port Phillip Bay region, including the current electorate of St Albans, for over 40,000 years before European settlement.
