The City of Casey is a Local Government Area in Victoria, Australia, located in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Casey is Victoria's most populous municipality, with a 2006 census population of 214,960.[2] The municipality's population growth rate during both 1996-2001 and 2001-2006 was higher, in absolute terms, than other rapidly growing outer Melbourne municipalities.[3] It has an area of 409.9 square kilometres (158.3 sq mi).

The City is named after Lord Casey, the 16th Governor-General of Australia, and was formed in 1994 by the merger of the City of Berwick with parts of shire of Cranbourne (including Cranbourne itself), as well as the Churchill Park Drive estate within the City of Knox.[4]



Casey is spread between the base of the Dandenong Ranges in the north and Western Port Bay in the south. It features a wide variety of geographical features, due to its outer metropolitan location.

The north, at the foothills of the Dandenongs, is primarily made up of large blocks of land used for grazing, with some small vineyards in operation. An Urban Growth Boundary has been in place since 2005 in order to protect this area from future residential subdivision.

Extensive development has transformed the area between Endeavour Hills and Cranbourne, including the suburbs of Narre Warren, Berwick, Doveton and Cranbourne, into primarily suburban land. Most of this land is flat, and was formerly made up of large farming properties.

South of Cranbourne is largely farmland, used for market gardening and grazing. A small number of flower farms exist around Junction Village, along with the large Ingham’s plant at Clyde.

The southern border of the city is formed by the Western Port Bay, and is the location of a variety of towns including Tooradin and Warneet. The coastal reserves, including the marshes at Tooradin, link up the eastern Western Port with the Mornington Peninsula, although the city excludes the Mornington Peninsula itself.

The Cardinia border of the city is formed for some of the boundary by the Cardinia Creek, which is drained through channels into Western Port Bay at its southern end. The popular Riding of the Bounds event takes place along this border, in recognition of Berwick’s sister city status with Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland, England.[5]

  Elected Council

The City of Casey is divided into six wards, each represented by two Councillors except for the Balla Balla Ward which has one representative. The eleven Councillors elect the Mayor each year. The council is currently led by Mayor Shar Balmes. Cr Wayne Smith is Deputy Mayor.[6]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
