The area was called Karrum Karrum, or as some of the early squatters interpreted it, Garem Gam, meaning "Boomerang". The swampy marshland behind the sand dunes was a rich hunting ground teeming with wildlife.Put Carrum Downs at the heart of your travel plans by using our Australia trip itinerary builder.
