A bayside suburb is 25 km south-east of central Melbourne. The name's antecedents are a squatting run ‘Moodi Yallo’ (1837). The name is thought to be derived from Aboriginal words meaning creek named Moodi or Marida or meaning ‘near little sea’ or ‘small tidal stream’. In the last census of 2011 the population of Mordialloc was at 7537 and today as your Mordialloc real estate agents we identify Mordialloc as “trendy and beautiful” with boutique shopping, tasteful restaurants and pristine beaches. The locals nick name the suburb “Mordy”.
Parents have an extensive choice for child care and kindergartens, with Kindy Patch, Ready Steady Go Kids, and Kingston Kids Pre-School and Child care; just to mention some. When your child is then off to Primary and Secondary School, the options are widespread including Mordialloc Beach Primary School, St Brigid’s Primary School, Yarrabah School and Mordialloc College. As your Mordialloc real estate agents we enjoy working closely with those in the community, sponsoring these local schools with their events.
