View Rosebud’s Statistics & Demographics
The seaside town of Rosebud, nestled on a stretch of beach on the bay-side of the Mornington Peninsula, acquired the name from the two-masted schooner, ‘Rosebud’, that was wrecked on the sandbar in the front of the town in the May of 1855, during a gale. An interesting article regarding an insurance claim on the wreck was printed in the ‘Age’ on the 29th November 1855.
Looking at the metropolis that Rosebud has become, it is hard to believe that less than a century ago it was described as:
” . . . A small fishing village on Port Phillip Bay at foot of Capel sound and Arthurs seat ; 3 miles from Dromana. Louis Anderson, postmaster. Population, 90 . . . “
