 Area Information

The City of Melbourne is located on east central Florida's Space Coast.  Melbourne is about an hour's drive south of the Kennedy Space Center, and 1-1/2 hours due east of Disney World.

The City is in the southern portion of Brevard County. Interstate-95 runs through the county from north-to-south.  Access roads from the west include the Beeline Expressway and U.S. 192, which runs through Melbourne to the beaches.

Nearby incorporated communities include Palm Bay,West Melbourne,Indialantic, Melbourne Beach,Indian Harbour Beach, and Satellite Beach. Viera and Suntree, unincorporated communities, are also nearby.

While most of Melbourne is located on the Florida mainland, a small portion is located on a barrier island. The Indian River Lagoon separates the mainland from the island. The island is a narrow strip of land that separates the Lagoon from the Atlantic Ocean. (In prehistoric times the Lagoon was connected to the Ocean. Today, the only connection is by way of a handful of inlets, including the manmade Sebastian Inlet at the southern end of Brevard County.)
