History of Carrum Downs Carrum Downs had a 15-km long marshland surrounded by highlands. Called Karrum Karrum by Aborigines, the area was full of wildlife and presented a big challenge for early settlers, who misspelled it as Garem Gam, meaning "Boomerang." John Watkins, a fisherman, was the earliest known English settlers living in the area. Following an 1866 survey, many bought land in Carrum Downs under the project "Allotments on the Long Beach."

Following World War II, Carrum Downs became a planned village for the old and aged. The early 1980s saw a major real-estate development, and the area grew rapidly to host many residential and commercial areas in the next two decades.
