Mt Eliza is an affluent large beachside 'village' in the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, some 45km south of Melbourne CBD, and some 7km south of Frankston. It has about 3 relatively quiet sandy beaches. It is dissected by the Nepean Highway with its small shopping centre on the 'bayside' of the Nepean Highway. The shopping centre is self contained with a supermarket, several cafes and eatieries, and most other basic shopping facilities. Mt Eliza is at the northern end of Mornington Peninsula Shire which runs from there to the extreme south of the peninsula at Point Nepean.
For much of its existence Mt Eliza was thought of by many to be a retirement or holiday village for Melbournians, though this has now changed.
