The Melbourne East Region incorporates the seven Local Government Areas of Maroondah City Council, Knox City Council, Shire of Yarra Ranges, City of Monash, City of Whitehorse, Manningham City Council and the City of Boroondara.

These LGA’s are being supported by the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (DTPLI) and Regional Development Australia to develop the Melbourne East Regional Sport and Recreation Strategy.
