Description

Cobblebank is a developing outer suburb located 31km west of the CBD of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its local government area is the City of Melton. The suburb was gazetted by the Office of Geographic Names on 9 February 2017, following a proposal for eleven new suburbs by the City of Melton. The new name officially came into effect in mid-2017. Prior to the suburb's creation, the area was part of Melton South. # History Cobblebank is bounded to the west by the Toolern Creek, which was gazetted in 1881 as a 'Permanent Reserve for Public Purposes'. The reserve includes the bed of the creek and is nominally 20.12 metres (one chain) wide from the banks of the creek, Aboriginal artefacts have also been found in this area. The district was originally surveyed by Europeans as part of the Parish of Kororoit in the 1840s, the area has been farmed continuously since then, with a small number of industrial buildings, and suburban development commencing in late 2011. A dry-stone wall, built during the early European farming days, has been preserved near Ferris Road. The northern boundary is formed by the Western Freeway, which connects Cobblebank to both Melbourne and Melton (and Ballarat beyond). The northern part of Cobblebank is home to Tabcorp Park, a horse racing venue opened in 2009 for harness racing. # Weather # Things to do
