Characterised by it’s coastal location and award winning beaches, Frankston City is one of Australia’s best kept secrets that offers visitors and residents the best of both worlds: a sea change, with all the mod cons a city has to offer. With a number of high rise buildings, stunning rooftop views and a plethora of laneways, Frankston’s city centre precinct could be called a microcosm of Melbourne CBD. And with that comes a desire for great food, coffee, music, festivals, markets and street art.
Some of the largest walls in the City Centre have recently been transformed into street art from international artist, which has been enabled from The Big Picture Fest. But the City is no stranger to art, home to one of the largest metropolitan art venues in Australia; The Frankston Arts Centre hosts year round unforgettable entertainment and McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery, which features 16 hectares of sculptures and an onsite gallery, we have developed an official reputation as an arts precinct.
Every October and November, our stunning waterfront becomes abuzz with fisherman looking to catch fresh snapper. Over the warmer months, fisherman also pick up whiting, flathead and fresh squid in abundance from our bay.
Over the last few years, Frankston City has also become a home of craft beer. Many brewers are choosing to establish their breweries in Frankston’s industrial precinct and by the waterfront.
And when it comes to festivals and events Frankston City is the place to be. Frankston strives to retain and attract new first class events which engage the local community and businesses, whilst increasing visitation each year. In a nutshell, we have a slightly grungy city with a love of fresh fish and beer, with amazing views, lively events, outdoor sculptures and stunning beaches – the perfect spot for you to visit and enjoy.
