Located 36km from Melbourne’s CBD with a population of 15561 (2006 census).  A residential suburb becoming increasingly popular due to its lower land prices.  An older generation dominates, however as younger home buyers move in the area is rapidly gentrifying. Originally established on wetlands (which are now limited to a large reserve extending from Edithvale, which is popular for rare birds and endangered migratory wildlife). The areas beach side of the Nepean Hwy attract the highest prices. Some of the streets are protected from development by environmental overlays, however developers have moved in and land is being subdivided with older properties replaced with double story or single level units and town houses. There is a small shopping strip around the train station on the Nepean Hwy, however most residents travel to Frankston’s shopping centre which has a better choice of facilities. Northern parts of the suburb are more industrial in nature.
