Area overview

We acknowledge and recognise the Traditional Owners of the land within the regional area, being the Bunurong People.

Melbourne’s Southern Region spans bayside, growth areas and regional hubs of Frankston and Dandenong, and extends from its northern border at Cheltenham and Moorabbin to the southern tip of the Mornington Peninsula and the eastern limits of Pakenham and Officer.

The region is growing faster than the metropolitan average, and this will increase with development in Casey and Cardinia. International and interstate migration has driven the growth, and there are large multicultural communities in Casey and Greater Dandenong.

Major industrial areas contribute to employment and economic activity in the region, while two national employment and innovation clusters provide opportunities for knowledge-intensive jobs.

There is a concentration of manufacturing businesses and growth in advanced manufacturing, while rapid population growth is driving jobs growth in service industries. The top employing industries are manufacturing, retail trade, healthcare and social assistance, construction, and education and training.

Opportunities

Southern Metropolitan communities and the Southern Metropolitan Partnership have identified a need for:

  • investment to help connect young people and recent arrivals with employers, particularly those offering apprenticeships.
