The word Karrum Karrum was recorded as being used by the original inhabitants of nearby Olivers Hill, as noted by surveyors in 1836. The first survey of (now) Carrum Downs was conducted in 1866 and noted a single dwelling; fast forward 150 years and this number is over 8000 dwellings and a little over 20,000 residents.
The initial stage of Carrum Downs consisted of what was known as Botany Park; a housing estate built by well-known and accomplished developer A.V Jennings, who is still in operation today, this estate formed the ground roots on the expanding and ever changing footprint of Carrum Downs. Quant street scapes in uniformity along with many streets named after native birds to the region, add to the quant big town in a peninsula setting that is the soul of Carrum Downs.
