Mordialloc, also known simply as Mordi, is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 24 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Kingston. At the 2011 census, Mordialloc had a population of 7,537.

The name is derived from the term moordy yallock which originated from the Aboriginal language Boonwurrung, which is listed in some sources as meaning 'muddy creek', and in others as 'little sea'.

Mordialloc Post Office opened on 17 October 1863. In 1995 it was renamed Braeside Business Centre, and a new Mordialloc office opened near the railway station. Mordialloc Creek is arguably the most significant feature of the suburb. Home to Pompei's boat works, Mordialloc Creek has a rich history of traditional wooden boat building. Many classic boats line the banks of the creek.

  1. Some fine looking boats here, but owning a boat is constant maintenance work as your last photo shows.

  2. Nice images of this attractive corner of the bay. Your reflections post has taught me something about this area of Melbourne - once a fishing village - which I didn't know, despite being a resident of Bayside for much of the year. Thank you.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
