Prior to December 15, 1994, Skye was part of the City of Cranbourne formally the Shire of Cranbourne. It still shares the same postcode, 3977, with Cranbourne.

The suburb has one school, Skye Primary School. The suburb has a number of newer housing developments (many which have been developed since 2005).

Skye enjoys a large area of land to the east of the suburb which is outside the main growth area and is semi-rural. It forms a green wedge between Skye and Cranbourne West, which is in the neighboring municipality of the City of Casey.
