Appropriate naming is essential for identifying locations when managing emergencies and delivering goods and services in Victoria. The naming rules are based on national standards and policies.

The names have been selected in accordance with the Geographical Names Victoria (GNV) requirements and the Official naming rules for places in Victoria 2022.

The names Augustine Boulevard, Pampas Boulevard, Fescue Way, Poa Drive, Bermuda Drive and Napier Circuit have been selected in accordance with GNV naming principle C linking the name to place.
