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.
