Bangholme, situated on the former Carrum Swamp, is between Keysborough and Chelsea Heights, 30 km south-east of Melbourne.

The name comes from a waterhole on the Eumemmerring Creek, somewhat east of the present Bangholme, where Joseph Hawdon pastured stock in 1837. The name of the waterhole, derived from the Aboriginal word Parnham, had various pronunciations, including Baungan. It is thought that the Aboriginal word means hut.
