Manningham Wards on visual map

A Ward is the electorate that a Councillor represents. It is broadly equivalent to a 'seat' in State or Federal elections.

Wards are devised on the basis of communities of similar interest or similar areas; and a statutory requirement for each Ward not to vary from other Wards in number of voters by more than plus or minus 10 per cent.

Manningham is divided into three Wards; Heide Ward, Koonung Ward and Mullum Mullum Ward. The names are based upon significant features or community facilities within the particular Ward. Koonung and Mullum Mullum are named after major streams and Heide after the artistic heritage of the Bulleen area. Each ward is represented by three councillors.
