The seaside suburb of Carrum runs along the coast from the Patterson River toward Seaford. Carrum’s gorgeous beach is part of the Longbeach precinct and is book ended by seaside suburbs Bonbeach and Seaford. Walking through the Carrum life saving club out toward the water is a treat and many young families frequent the foreshore playground, boardwalk and Beauty Spot nearby.

The homes in the small cul-de-sacs leading from Nepean Highway to the beach are also rare and this incredible residential beach access is one of Carrum’s unique features, shared only by a select group of suburbs in all of Melbourne.
