"Great place to get back to nature"

Forming part of the Great Dividing Range, this rural suburb is home to almost one and a half thousand people. Boasting features such as forest and farmland, views of the Melbourne skyline and Yarra Valley wineries, a camping and nature reserve and a national park, where visitors can walk along trails and tracks, enjoy a picnic or camp overnight, Kinglake is well suited to families and retirees. It was one of the worst affected towns of the Black Saturday bushfires early this year as were some of its neighbours, including Glenburn, Toolangi, Castella, Steels Creek, Christmas Hills, St Andrews, Strathewen, Kinglake West, Pheasant Creek and Kinglake Central. Based roughly 60km north east of Melbourne, Kinglake plays host to a local Aussie Rules football team and a junior basketball team.
