We embrace and celebrate diversity at Yarra.
The City of Yarra is a vibrant and diverse municipality. It is the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri, and a place of special significance for the broader Aboriginal community.
We are an inclusive municipality, with a high proportion of same sex couples, almost one fifth of our residents are from non-English speaking backgrounds, and almost a quarter speak a language other than English at home.
Yarra is home to a high proportion of residents living with socio-economic disadvantage, in what is an otherwise relatively affluent municipality.
Our city has an increasing number of older residents, despite a median age less than the state average.
This diversity ensures the City of Yarra is dynamic with a lively culture built on a rich history.
