Carrum Downs is located roughly 43km from the heart of the Melbourne CBD. Carrum Downs enjoys a rich community atmosphere while being surrounded by a vast natural landscape. There is also plenty to do! Take a sunrise stroll along the Tidal Canal, go fishing or take it easy with a relaxing cup of tea in town. Indoors or outdoors, you won't be short of activities to suit your mood. Although we don't have a retirement village in Carrum Downs, we do have some nearby.
