The City of Casey is a local government area in Victoria, Australia in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Casey is Victoria's most populous municipality, with a 2011 census population of 252,382.[1] The municipality's population growth rate during both 1996-2001 and 2001-2006 was higher, in absolute terms, than other rapidly growing outer Melbourne municipalities.[2] It has an area of 409.9 square kilometres (158.3 sq mi).

The City is named after Lord Casey, the 16th Governor-General of Australia, and was formed in 1994 by the merger of the City of Berwick with parts of shire of Cranbourne (including Cranbourne itself), as well as the Churchill Park Drive estate within the City of Knox.[3]


Casey is spread between the base of the Dandenong Ranges in the north and Western Port Bay in the south. It features a wide variety of geographical features, due to its outer metropolitan location.

The north, at the foothills of the Dandenongs, is primarily made up of large blocks of land used for grazing, with some small vineyards in operation. An Urban Growth Boundary has been in place since 2005 in order to protect this area from future residential subdivision.

South of Cranbourne is largely farmland, used for market gardening and grazing. A small number of flower farms exist around Junction Village, along with the large Ingham’s plant at Clyde.

The southern border of the city is formed by the Western Port Bay, and is the location of a variety of towns including Tooradin and Warneet. The coastal reserves, including the marshes at Tooradin, link up the eastern Western Port with the Mornington Peninsula, although the city excludes the Mornington Peninsula itself.

The Cardinia border of the city is formed for some of the boundary by the Cardinia Creek, which is drained through channels into Western Port Bay at its southern end. The popular Riding of the Bounds event takes place along this border, in recognition of Berwick’s sister city status with Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland, England.[4]

Elected Council[edit]

The City of Casey is divided into six wards.[5]

  • Balla Balla Ward - Cr Geoff Ablett
  • Edrington Ward - Cr Mick Morland and Cr Susan Serey
  • Four Oaks Ward - Cr Rafal Kaplon and Cr Rosalie Crestani
  • Mayfield Ward - Cr Gary Rowe and Cr Amanda Stapledon
  • Rivergum Ward - Cr Damien Rosario and Cr Wayne Smith JP
  • Springfield Ward - Cr Sam Aziz and Cr Louise Berkelmans

Elections are held every four years with voters in Balla Balla Ward electing one Councillor and all other wards electing two Councillors per ward. The eleven Councillors vote each year to elect a Mayor.

Council services[edit]

In the 2007-2008 financial year, the council will administer a budget of $191.32 million with $56.77 million allocated to infrastructure projects; $134.55 million provided for delivery of council services.[6]
