The English cargo vessel Rosebud was beached in 1855, some distance to the west where Rosebud Pier is currently located. The locals then commonly referred to the area after the schooner.

The seaside town of Rosebud is situated between Rye and Dromana, with Rosebud beach facing Port Phillip on the Mornington Peninsula. Rosebud’s sandy coastline is a long stretch of safe swimming beaches. One of the longest piers in the Peninsula, Rosebud Pier, sits opposite of Jetty Road. The foreshore has some community facilities, parkland, camping areas and smattering of bushland.

  2. G’day,
    I just dropped in to thank you for your visit & noting a like, it was very much appreciated. We camped at Rosebud caravan park for about 4-5 Christmas school holidays, over thirty five years ago now, loved it 🙂

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! If you hadn’t done that I would never have found yours!! I love your photos and as I spent the first 30 years of my life in Victoria they have stirred up many memories.

  4. I just got back from Rosebud tonight and will be heading down there again later this week. I am bit obsessed with Rosebud sunsets; I have added few on my blog. Nice shots of yours taken up near McRae, where you don’t have to walk a mile to get completely wet. No wonder “The Rosebud” beached itself west of Rosebud.
