Epping is one of the fastest growing suburbs in Melbourne and is located 26 kilometres north of the Melbourne CBD. It is managed by the City of Whittlesea.

Epping’s history dates back to the mid-19th century when a village reserve was developed. Expansive projects were carried out in the region from the 1970s, and the suburb has since grown to be what it is today.
