I bet you love to support local, just like me! But I felt disconnected and found it tricky to locate local businesses within Nillumbik. After some research and digging around, I saw an opportunity to connect local people with local business. So, Nillumbik Connections, an Online Directory, was born.


We all love to support local businesses and see them thrive, so what better way than to connect people that are looking for a local service or product, with a Nillumbik business, rather than a big Multi-National brand. More now, than ever before we want to shop and support local. Nillumbik Connections was created whilst feeling like I couldn’t find what I was looking for and forever posting on FB Groups asking for recommendations on what I was in search of. We all want to see Nillumbik businesses flourish!

About me

I am Jo Davidson, Founder of Nillumbik Connections. I’m a wife and a mum to three girls and we moved to Eltham years ago in search of a safe and family friendly area to raise our family. I’m passionate about supporting other mums in business and seeing families bloom in the area too.

In a past life, I worked in corporate Human Resources. The part I loved the most was working with people, supporting and connecting them with what they loved to do in work. So, this Online Directory was a natural progression for me to continue connecting people with business and fulfilling a passion of supporting local business at the same time.


We love to know what is going on around town, ideas for weekend activities, sports, live music, markets, picnic suggestions, café recommendations, bush walks – this area offers it all, we really are spoilt for choice in the Nillumbik area, aren’t we? Nillumbik Connections will bring all of this information into the one space for us to enjoy and make it easy to SUPPORT LOCAL!
