The township of Seville sits on the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail, a vibrant community resource used by walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders. It is part of the Shire of Yarra Ranges and close to suburbs including Lilydale, Launching Place and Woori Yallock.

It was first settled in 1886 by the Payne, Olerenshaw and Downham families, and was originally named Redlands before being rechristened in honour of the daughter of State Treasury officer and settler, William Henry Smith.

It is a well-known agricultural area of the Yarra Valley and home to some of the region's highest-awarded wines and the annual 'Shedfest' weekend that celebrates the smaller vineyards of the area.

Cool down in summer here at the ever-popular Seville Water Play Park. What a fabulous use of a 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. Remember to pack the hat and sunscreen though!
