"The City of Brimbank was formed on 15 December 1994, following the amalgamation of the former Cities of Keilor and Sunshine. It was a union of two municipalities with diverse characteristics in a period of significant change for Local Government in Victoria.

With an area of 123 square kilometres, Brimbank is the second largest municipality in Melbourne and the largest in the Western Region. It is approximately 20 kilometres from the CBD.

Brimbank is a dynamic and rapidly growing city which encompasses 25 new and established suburbs including Albion, Cairnlea, Deer Park, Delahey, Hillside, Keilor, Kings Park, St Albans, Sunshine, Sydenham and Taylors Lakes.

In 2005, following more than a decade of rapid growth the population has grown to more than 175,000 and is estimated to increase to 200,766 by the year 2015."
