Chelsea is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 30 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Kingston. At the 2016 census, Chelsea had a population of 7,773. Chelsea is located on Port Philip Bay and is the most important bayside suburban centre between Mordialloc and Frankston. Chelsea is very popular with beachgoers during summer. Also popular is Bicentennial Park, located about 1 km inland on the site of a former rubbish tip. It has recently been redeveloped with modern barbecue and play equipment, most notably the Mount Chelsea adventure playground. While there are older homes in the area—the Chelsea Post Office opened around 1907—most of Chelsea was developed post-World War II. Many houses were demolished to make way for single storey units in the 1960s and 1970s. Chelsea has smaller households, fewer families with children and more elderly people than most other Melbourne suburbs. A large shopping strip is located along Nepean Highway.
