Township of Rosebud

Rosebud is the traditional family holiday resort of the Peninsula. Friendly, affordable and centrally located, Rosebud welcomes many 1000s of holidaymakers every year. Accommodation is excellent, with a wide range to suit all budgets, and facilities include several top golf courses, a new cinema complex, an indoor pool complex, minigolf, tennis, bowls, ten pin bowling, skating, and a number of amusement centres.

Although Rosebud began as a fishing village as early as the 1850s, its tourism fame since World War Two has been established as a result of its natural foreshore, shielded by banksia, tea tree and sheoak; a combination that has attracted generations of devoted family campers and bathers.

Sandbars extending up to 200 metres from the shore create an ideal safe setting for family bathing. A lengthy retail strip on Pt Nepean Road, including major shopping centres, provides all facilities for the now largely residential population. The Rosebud area also provides the region's greatest concentration of golf courses, with major resort style courses only minutes away.
