The City of Bayside has a population of approximately 91,800 (Census 2011, ABS) made up largely by professional people with above average educational qualifications. The population's strong Anglo-Saxon base is reflected in the low proportion of people who speak a language other than English.

Bayside is bordered by 17km of beachfront overlooking Port Phillip Bay and has many traditional shopping villages, heritage buildings and large parks.
