Carrum History


Carrum viewed from the Patterson river

The suburb of Carrum is located on what was originally part of the Carrum Carrum swamp.The Carrum Carrum Swamp was drained in 1879 when the Patterson Cut (formed in 1876), and other drainage measures were undertaken to prevent flooding of the Eumemmering Creek, which overflowed into the Carrum Carrum Swamp. The swamp opening was mostly only open during the Winter months, so heavy Spring and Summer rains often caused flooding to properties on the edge of the swamp area. It also often caused flood damage as far north as Edithvale. The only remnants of the Carrum Carrum Swamp now form the Ramsar-listed Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands.

Carrum has its own railway station which opened in 1882, being the first Railway Station between Mordialloc and Frankston. Carrum Post Office opened on 1 February 1886, some time after the railway.

In 1924 the Carrum Bowling Club was founded; in 1937 the Carrum Surf Life Saving Club was founded; in 1946 the Patterson River Motor Boat Club was founded at the original site of the Carrum Life Saving Club, which located to a new site 400 metres south; and in 1966 the Carrum Sailing Club was founded.,_Victoria
