Suburb profile: Rosebud, VIC 3939

Originally known as Banksia Point, Rosebud began life as a fishing community in the early 1850s. Rosebud is now a large beach-side centre fronting Port Phillip on the Mornington Peninsula, located between Rye and Dromana.

Rosebud's commercial centre stretches along one side of about a 2 kilometre length of Point Nepean Road, with some shops separated from this wide thoroughfare by a service road. The shopping precinct features attractive garden strips, paved areas and several wood carvings of notable local identities from the past. At the western end of the commercial strip is the large Rosebud Plaza Shopping Centre, while towards the eastern end is the smaller Rosebud Beach Shopping Centre, Rosebud Central Shopping Centre and local cinema complex.

Rosebud provides safe swimming beaches along its continuous stretch of sandy bay coastline, with the focal point being Rosebud Pier which it located opposite Jetty Road and extends about 300 metres into the water. A notable feature of Rosebud's bay foreshore is a lack of commercial development. Most of the area between the coastal route of Point Nepean Road and the beach consists of community facilities, parkland and camping areas within sections of bushland.

A striking landmark in Rosebud is the bushy mountain peak of Arthurs Seat. It rises up in the distance behind the shops along Point Nepean Road and provides a scenic backdrop when viewed on Rosebud's beaches.

Rosebud provides plenty of sporting activities for visitors. As well as several golf courses within Rosebud itself, more can be found a short drive inland at Fingal and Boneo. Rosebud is also home to several large sports reserves including Olympic Park and Trueman Road Recreational Reserve.

A 12 kilometre journey south of Rosebud along Boneo Road is Cape Schanck where a historic lighthouse crowns the rugged southern tip of the Mornington Peninsula.

Rosebud is shielded by camping grounds lined with banksias, tea tree and sheoak. During the summer months and as late as Easter campers can be found in these areas. Rosebud is one of the main towns on the Mornington Peninsula mostly because of its shopping areas. Rosebud Plaza (formerly known as Port Phillip Plaza) contains 70 stores including Australian Post, K-Mart, Woolworths, Coles, Sussan, Donut King, Wendy's, Peninsula Surf Centre and Target. The second shopping centre in the town is the Rosebud Beach Shopping Centre which includes Woolworths and nearby is Peninsula Cinemas. The Public Library is located at the Rosebud Central Shopping Centre. The Centre also contains the Dimmeys discount retail store and many specialty stores including a Hairdresser, a Cafe, Pet Store and a Butchers. There is a shopping strip in Capel Sound, along Point Nepean Road.

Rosebud is popular for its weekend markets, including craft and vintage markets. Rosebud is known for its fresh fruit and vegetable produce. There are many market growers in the area, including Lamantina's, suppliers of vegetables to the nation's supermarkets. To the South, near Main Ridge can be found the Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm. In the warmer months, locals and visitors flock here to pick their own strawberries.

The foreshore area of Rosebud is one of the largest camping areas on the peninsula. During the summer months the populations of Rosebud and Dromana can double in size, making for a very touristy feel. In 2016, Mornington Peninsula Shire completed the complete rebuild of Rosebud's famous Jetty. Workers replaced hundreds of metres of old timbers, fitted state-of-the-art LED (Light Emitting Diode) Lighting installations and constructed a huge "scalable" children's playground, just to the South of the Jetty itself. At 2017, a massive semi-high rise block of residential units is due for completion. Sitting at the corner of Jetty and Point Nepean Roads, it dominates the skyline for visitors as they approach the Jetty precinct.

Locals say that Rosebud is a vibrant coastal town and a wonderful place to raise a young family.
