Dromana, a residential and seaside suburb on the Mornington Peninsula, faces Port Phillip Bay about 58 km south of Melbourne. The precise origin of the name is uncertain, except that it came from Dromana in County Down or the County of Waterford, Ireland.
Farms and Village
Dromana is situated between Arthurs Seat (where Andrew McCrae took up a pastoral run in 1844) and Safety Beach where Hugh Jamieson obtained a Special Survey property of eight square miles in 1841. Jamieson's property was also known as the Kangerong Basin, and it was later occupied by tenant farmers.
