The township of Seville sits on the Lilydale - Warburton Rail Trail, a vibrant community resource used by walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders. It is a well known agricultural area of the Yarra Valley and home to some of the regions highest awarded wines and the annual 'Shedfest' weekend that celebrates the smaller vineyards of the area. You could find yourself sipping on a Yarra Valley Champion Wine of Show at Seville Estate or chatting with the growers and winemakers at Seville Hill whilst enjoying the music knowing it's only a wander down the paddock to where you're staying for the night.
Cool down in summer here at the ever popular Seville Water Play Park. What a fabulous use of an defunct public swimming pool! A lovely way to spend a hot summer afternoon having fun among the water sprays. The old Seville Pool was covered in to make a play area with water jets which periodically spout up in patterns at regular intervals. Spread out on a rug and enjoy the time out. Do remember to pack the hat and sunscreen though!
Created in 1885, Seville was initially called "a township in the parish of Wandin Yalloak". A year later it was named Redlands, but as there was already a town with this name, it was renamed Seville in May 1886 after the daughter of resident William Henry Smith.
