Cranbourne South

About the profile areas

The 2016 Estimated Resident Population for Cranbourne South is 1,728, with a population density of 0.93 persons per hectare.

Location and boundaries

Cranbourne South is bounded by Cranbourne-Frankston Road, Pearcedale Road and Browns Road in the north, Craig Road in the east, North Road in the south and the Western Port Highway in the west.

Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s, with land used mainly for farming and grazing. Some growth took place in the late 1800s, and again during the post-war years. The population fluctuated slightly during the 1990s, due to small changes in dwelling stock and the average number of persons living in each dwelling. The population was relatively stable between 2001 and 2011, a result of few new dwellings being added to the area and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
