Cranbourne is located about 43km South-East of Melbourne's CBD.

Located in the City of Casey, Cranbourne is 43km southeast of Melbourne and has a diverse population of young couples, families with children and empty-nesters who call the suburb home.

After a long history as a farming and agricultural hub, Cranbourne has developed over the decades into a thriving suburb. Some locals will describe Cranbourne as a suburb that has ‘stepped up its game’.

Housing styles

There is a mix of houses, townhouses and units of all sizes, including newly designed homes and older houses that have been upgraded or are ripe for families or investors to purchase and renovate. Large housing estates that have sprung up around greater Cranbourne in recent years have played an important role in the area's growth by attracting an influx of home buyers and investors.
