About Matthew Kirwan

I have been a Greens Councillor for Red Gum Ward in Greater Dandenong since 2012, covering Keysborough South, Dandenong, Dandenong South, Bangholme and parts of 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 an IT 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 Lions Club of Greater Dandenong, Greater Dandenong Neighbourhood Watch and Greater Dandenong Environment Group.

I have been a member of the Greens since 2008.
