Ranelagh Estate, Mt Eliza - Cya On The Road

The Ranelagh Estate is a hidden gem in Mt Eliza designed by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin. It is a garden suburb with a very strong community spirit.As a heritage area it is an interesting case. On one hand there is an original covenant on the land titles restricting building to one dwelling per lot; the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Heritage Victoria and the National Trust have heritage orders in place; and there is a strong and active community – nevertheless the character of the Ranelagh Estate is disappearing.At the beginning of Nevil Shute’s “On the Beach”, written on the estate and partly filmed nearby, is a quote from T.S.Eliot                        This is the way the world ends            This is the way the world ends            This is the way the world ends            Not with a bang but a whimper.
