The Somers Residents Association (SRA) is an incorporated, not-for-profit, voluntary organization. Our role is to liaise and lobby where necessary, with representatives from the Mornington Peninsula Shire, Victorian State and Federal Governments and relevant business leaders, on behalf of the community. Membership is open to full or part-time residents living within postcode 3927.
Located 72 km south east of Melbourne on the shores of Western Port Bay, Somers is located off the main road from Melbourne to Flinders.
Surrounded by sea, wineries, farmland and nature reserves, Somers is both an attractive destination for holiday makers and an excellent place to live for those who value a quieter lifestyle. Its semi isolation makes Somers a special place that retains an essentially rural character despite its proximity to Melbourne.

SRA Photo Competition winners announced at SRA Open Day
- Under 10 years – Molly Morgan
- Age 11-18 years – Tom Connell
- Adult category – Robin Wise.
Unfortunately none of the winners were present to receive their prizes personally however each was awarded, an enlarged, framed copy of their winning entry and a $100 gift voucher from Ted’s Camera Store.
Prizes were jointly announced and presented by Gerry Lewis, SRA President; Beverley Cameron, a well known artist; and Russell Joseph, the endorsed Liberal candidate for the State seat of Nepean.
The judges were, retired professional photographer Max Hem and photographic teacher and former SRA committee member Morag Seward.
The theme of the contest was “the essence of Somers, to demonstrate what Somers means to the photographer. There were only a small number of entries this time, but by the interest on the day we are looking forward to a greater response in 2018 as this will become an annual event.
The SRA would like to thank Mrs Beverley Cameron for her generous donation again this year, which enabled this competition.
In response to a request from MPS Council for their 2018-19 budget the SRA forwarded 2 submissions: –
1 An allowance to reconstruct and make safe Sandy Point Road, from the intersection of South Beach Rd to the intersection of Lord Somers Rd.
2 Undertake a study and draft revegetation plan for Somers, along Sandy Point, Lord Somers and Camp Hill roads.
There is no guarantee these submission will be approved in the short term, but it is certainly worth trying as this is the way funding was obtained by the SRA for the improvement to Tasman Road and the Coolart Road bend near the Lord Somers camp.
