Carnegie is a residential suburb 12 km south-east of central Melbourne on the railway line between Caulfield and Oakleigh. The area was originally named Rosstown after William Ross, an entrepreneur who constructed a railway line through the area from Oakleigh to Elsternwick. The line had the dual objectives of transporting sugar beet from Gippsland to a processing mill at Elsternwick and opening up land for residential subdivision.
