Suburb Overview

Hastings is a suburb on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, as a part of the urban enclave on Westernport comprising Hastings, Bittern, Crib Point, Tyabb, and Somerville. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Mornington Peninsula. It is served by Hastings railway station on the Stony Point greater-metropolitan line.

Hastings is situated on an inlet on Western Port, a major port and important environmental area. Hastings has multiple marinas and is home to many recreational boating activities.

Hastings is thought to be named after a fishing village in England or the British imperial administrator Warren Hastings. Previously known as King

Settlement of the area dates from the 1840s, with fishing being the main industry. Growth took place from the 1850s into the 1870s as the township developed. Expansion continued in the late 1880s and 1890s, aided by the construction of the railway line and the establishment of many orchards. Significant residential development occurred during the 1960s and 1970s, spurred by industrial growth and public housing construction. Growth began to slow from the 1980s. The population has increased since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.

Hastings is one of the 'gateways' to the lower Mornington Peninsula, and is located on the coast of Westernport Bay. Surrounded by farmlands it is still very much a country town with a strong sense of local community.

In 2004 Hastings was the overall winner of the Victorian Tidy Town Awards held by the Keep Australia Beautiful Network.

It has a population of over 7,000 and several major franchises have set up there. The opening of a K-Mart shopping centre on 19 October 2006 was the first large department store in the town.

Hastings was the seat of the Hastings Shire, before this was merged into the Mornington Peninsula Shire, and still has many buildings associated with federal, state and local governments. It has the headquarters of the regional traffic police. There is a modern library in the centre of town, outside of which is a statue of former resident and famous footballer, John Coleman. Other facilities include a public hall, and a modern aquatic centre.

Hastings has two public primary schools - Hastings Primary and West Park Primary. There is also a private Catholic school named St Marys Primary School, as well as Western Port Secondary College, a state high school.

In October 2003 the town was host to The Princess Royal. During her short stay she inspected the decommissioned submarine HMAS Otama, a vessel she launched in the 1970s.

Hastings is home to the Esso and BlueScope Steel manufacturing plants, and it is not uncommon to see large oil tankers docked near Long Island in Westernport Bay. Many residents of Hastings work or have family members working at Esso or BlueScope Steel. Hastings also hosts many small businesses associated with the recreational boating industry.
