Suburb Information

Capel Sound (formerly Rosebud West) is a suburb located on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

A distinguishing landmark feature of Capel Sound is the Tootgarook Swamp, the largest example left of a shallow freshwater marsh in the Port Phillip Bay region. The swamp is also described by Melbourne water as a groundwater dependent ecosystem.

The 381-hectare swamp is found on the lower section of the Mornington Peninsula, called the Nepean Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

A large portion of the Tootgarook Swamp is zoned as residential and industrial, with roughly half of the actual swamp inside the green wedge and half within the urban growth boundary.
