Cranbourne is a city in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 43 km southeast of Melbourne's central business district, within the City of Casey Local Government Area. Cranbourne recorded a population of 21,281 in the 2021 census. The ever-expanding Cranbourne Area includes Cranbourne, Cranbourne North, Cranbourne East, Cranbourne South, Victoria and Cranbourne West. Before European settlement, the Cranbourne area would have been occupied by the native Boonwurrung people. The first white settlers, the Ruffy brothers, arrived in 1836. They later opened the Cranbourne Inn.  The area has been heavily opened up by settlers since the 1860s. Cranbourne Post Office opened on 1 August 1857. Progress on land development around Cranbourne has been impeded by the Koo Wee Rup Swamp. However, William Lyall (who purchased the land in the marsh area) helped coordinate the drainage of the marsh to turn it into farmland. Cranbourne was, from 1860 to 1994, the administrative center of Cranbourne County (known for much of 1994 as the Town of Cranbourne). The council building still exists and is now used as a wellness center known as the 'Cranbourne Integrated Care Centre'. Prior to 1978, the Council met in the former Shire offices on the corner of Sladen Street and South Gippsland Highway.
