WikiNorthia encourages people across five local councils to get together and tell their stories providing a snapshot of life in the north of Melbourne now as well as the past.

A partnership within the northern region of Melbourne, consisting of Darebin Libraries, Moreland City Libraries and Yarra Plenty Regional Library have successfully secured funding from the Library Board of Victoria for a new project 'WikiNorthia' an online encyclopedia designed to document life in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne.

These three library services encompass five local council areas including Moreland, Darebin, Banyule, Nillumbik and Whittlesea.

The project will result in a wiki with contributions by a wide cross section of people living in the City of Moreland, the City of Darebin, the City of Banyule, the Shire of Nillumbik and the City of Whittlesea, which documents the present as well as recollections and histories. The generation and preservation of this information will be of a lasting benefit to the community.
