Healesville and Upper Yarra

Our branches are part of the Greens grassroots approach to democracy

Joining the Greens Party means having access to a local Greens branch. Based on local government areas, these hubs are vital avenues for our members to talk about politics and policy, join local campaigning, keep up to date with local issues and have direct access to Greens representatives.

Most of all, local Greens branches are a way for our members to join like-minded people, fellow Victorians who are also passionate about progressive Australian politics. Greens members are extraordinary people and by providing them with the space to foster proactive political and social change, the Greens aim to instil a long legacy of making a difference in the community.

All Victorian Greens members are automatically members of the Australian Greens. Being a part of our growing party means together, through the principles and aims of the Greens, we can stand up for what matters.

About Healesville and Upper Yarra Greens

Healesville is named for Richard Heales, who was Premier of Victoria in the 1860s. His policies show that he would have been a great Greens member. Our most important local issue is the Great Forest National Park. We work hard to protect our forests from having Vicforests convert them into wood chips, at a loss to the taxpayer.
