In 2019, the Yarra Ranges Shire launched an exciting project to transform Lilydale Road into a more people-friendly place.

Historically, Lilydale Road has been host to mostly industrial functions. The face of the street has evolved to a more retail and community focus, warranting a streetscape that reflects this.

The project aimed for a future Lilydale Road as a place for people to walk, pause, sit, and engage with Healesville and the surrounding businesses.
