The City of Wyndham is located on the western edge of Melbourne, between the metropolitan area and Geelong. Wyndham covers an area of 542km² and features 27.4 km of coastline bordering Port Phillip to the east. The municipality is situated in one of Australia’s most productive regions, part of the largest area of rich basalt soils on the continent. Wyndham is adjacent to the municipalities of Greater Geelong, Moorabool, Melton, Brimbank and Hobson’s Bay. The majority of residents travel to work by car (66%) and currently 6% of residents carpool to work. By increasing this number we hope to decrease CO2 emissions, reduce road congestion and make our roads safer.
