Carnegie is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 12 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Glen Eira. At the 2016 Census, Carnegie had a population of 17,388. Its postcode is 3163.
The suburb's main shopping precinct is a well-regarded ‘eat street,’ with cafes and restaurants lining Koornang Road from Dandenong Road to Neerim Road. Koornang Park and the neighbouring Carnegie Swim Centre are located between Koornang Road, Munro Avenue and Lyons Street.
Originally called Rosstown, after William Murray Ross, a prominent property developer and entrepreneur, a name change came about due to Ross' failed speculative developments. In 1909 it was renamed Carnegie. It has been suggested that this was done in an unsuccessful attempt to secure funds for a library from the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie but there is no contemporary evidence supporting this.
