We love Frankston
Frankston has it all, and if you live there you probably know it. There’s ample shopping at the Bayside shopping Centre, Frankston Power Centre, Karingal Hub or even the Nepean Highway strip, you’re likely to find anything you need.
It’s Melbourne’s largest southernmost suburb, perched on Port Phillip bay and the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula. Frankston is rich in History, Arts, Culture, Business, Health, Education, Sports & Events. It’s home to the Frankston Dolphins VFL team, which has an avid following with locals as well as 16 other Australian Rules Football teams.
Historically, Frankston was initially established through the fishing industry which led to The Pier being built in the 1850’s. Only a short walk from their pier you can explore walking trails such as in the Sweetwater Creek State park or beautiful Pentland Botanic Gardens.
Amenities such as Frankston Hospital & Peninsula Private Hospital as well as the Universities, Chisholm Institute & Monash University are also established in the suburb providing the most significant sources of employment.
There’s also a large influence from the arts with many public art centres and sculptures on display. If you happen to be around over the summer months you might be able to catch the annual Waterfront Festival, with fireworks and sand sculpting forming the main attractions.
