Located 50 km south east of Melbourne in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, Upper Beaconsfield enjoys a unique environmental and cultural heritage. Upper Beaconsfield is a strong community with community events and many groups relating to sport, recreation, the environment and community support. The Upper Beaconsfield Festival is pictured above.
Over 4000 residents enjoy living in the landscape of bushland and fields. The hilltop village stands on a ridge with 200m elevation at the General Store. At various locations you can get excellent views south to Port Phillip and Westernport Bays. Northwards are views towards Emerald across Cardinia Reservoir. Nearby settlements include Guys Hill, 2.5 km to the south by road and, to the north, parts of Dewhurst that survived the completion of Cardinia Reservoir in 1973. The small town centre offers a number of shops and eating establishments whilst maintaining a friendly village atmosphere.
