This office closed in 1972.There is still a couple of houses standing from the 1890s today in Skye. Prior to 15 December 1994, Skye was part of the City of Cranbourne formerly the Shire of Cranbourne. It still shares the postcode, 3977, with Cranbourne. # Weather # Things to do The suburb has two schools, Skye Primary School and Lighthouse Christian College.

It forms a green wedge between Skye and Cranbourne West, which is in the neighboring municipality of the City of Casey. Skye was ranked in 2015 as the least liveable suburb in Melbourne. Reasons cited for this included sewerage odour, a lack of public transport and a lack of shops. Nearby Sandhurst received a similarly negative ranking.
