About Matthew Kirwan

I was a Greens Councillor for Red Gum Ward in Greater Dandenong between 2012 and 2020, covering Dandenong, Dandenong South, Bangholme and parts of Keysborough, Dandenong North, Noble Park and Lyndhurst. You can read about my achievements in my time on Council here.


I have lived in Greater Dandenong all my life. I went to Maralinga Primary School and Chandler High School, both in Keysborough, and studied at Monash University and RMIT. I now have a career as a Project Manager.

I have been active in our community throughout my life including through Scouts, St Anthony’s Outreach Group and the Rotaract Club of Noble Park, of which I was President in 2001-2002.

My current community involvement includes the Greater Dandenong Environment Group and Defenders of the South East Green Wedge.

I have been a member of the Greens since 2008.
