Frankston City is home to more than 30 stunning street art pieces and murals.
Frankston City’s vibrant street art scene just keeps getting better, and now you’ve got the chance to learn the stories behind these stunning images on a guided walking tour.
The CBD has become a canvas for some of the world’s best street artists thanks to the annual Big Picture Fest, which began in 2018 and attracts international street artists who transform drab walls in hidden laneways and high-profile locations with captivating and mesmerising images.
With groups of fewer than 10 people and offering all-abilities access, the 90-minute tours cost $15 a person and are suitable for the whole family. Bookings are essential and private tours are available on request. The next tours will be held this Friday at 6.30pm and Saturday at 11am – with participants on both days receiving a free box of chocolates in celebration of Valentine’s Day – and on Sunday, February 28, at 11am.
Frankston City Council’s tourism co-ordinator, Amy Parsons, said the tours were a great way for people to discover the creative energy within Frankston City. “Our street art helps create a sense of place, an identity for Frankston that builds on the reputation that our city is evolving,” Ms Parsons said. “You’ll be fascinated by the inspiration behind these artworks. Our local guides share these stories. It’s a vibrant urban art experience that you don’t have to travel to Melbourne for.”
The 2021 Big Picture Fest will be held from March 19-21, subject to COVID-19 restrictions. Check for updates and new street art pieces.
