ASPENDALE BEACH

Summer is here in Melbourne and last weekend the place to be was at the beaches and on the water. Fun in the sun is something that Melburnians do well, and of course there is an embarrassment of riches in terms of waterways and beaches that they can choose from.

Aspendale is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 27 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Kingston. At the 2011 Census, Aspendale had a population of 6,622. Aspendale is bisected by the Nepean Highway and the Frankston Railway line. These provide the main connections to inner Melbourne.

On the beach side of the highway, there is more medium density development, and land prices are very high. Some larger blocks with older houses remain in this area, although many of these larger blocks have been subdivided into flats and units in the past two decades. On the other side of the Nepean Highway, housing is typically low-density, and land values are not as high.

The Eastern boundary of Aspendale is the Mordialloc main drain. This area is very picturesque, with eucalypts and a long gravel track that extends from Mordialloc Creek, past the back of St Louis De Montfort's School to the Edithvale wetlands. The historic Doyles Bridge Hotel is situated at Number 1, Nepean Highway, Aspendale.
