Frankston waterfront.

It’s time to celebrate Frankston’s transformation.  The picture the city paints no longer matches the stereotypes. The experience waiting for you today is unexpected. It is urban, a little edgy, a lot of fun, and as you will see, it sure is beautiful.

A city with a heart of diversity, it delivers an unexpected blend of creative urban experiences, stunning coastal scenery and hidden bushland gems, all wrapped up with unpretentious pride and playful hospitality. Frankston is one of those enviable places which perfectly blends city, bush and bay. Getting back to nature is easy here. Ten kilometres of pristine coastline give ample opportunity for a dip in Port Phillip. If you don’t want to get your feet wet, immerse yourself in the pockets of native bush and natural wetlands. 

Norman Avenue, Frankston.

For a real treat, wander the Nature Conservation Reserve. Locked away for 95 years, its 98ha of untouched bushland can be explored by all. Slow down under the eucalypt canopies among wattles, tea-trees and wildflowers. As you walk around the blue waters of the reservoir at the centre of the reserve, you’ll get spectacular views of the Melbourne skyline and the bay.

Frankston has also become an iconic arts and culture destination. The Big Picture Fest has transformed the city’s buildings and laneways into an epic display of colour, creativity and movement. Regular Street Art Walking Tours (bookings essential via discoverfrankston.com), including twilight tours in the warmer months, reveal the city’s evolving arts and cultural edge as local guides share the artists’ reflections on moments in history, childhood characters and messages for future generations.

For those preferring to explore independently, download the Discover Frankston mobile app from the AppStore and Google Play to access the newly released Digital Walking Tours. The tours will guide you through the city and along the coastline to learn about the city’s street art, sculptures and historical highlights.

The experience doesn’t end with street art. Powerful, whimsical and playful sculptures are dotted throughout the city’s open spaces, foreshore and bushland reserves. Some stand tall and some you might need to look a little closer to find.  For more open-air art and culture, visit McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery and explore more than 100 sculptures within 16ha of native bushland, or the iconic Cruden Farm. Pack a picnic, discover and enjoy.

When the sun shines, so does Frankston’s foodie scene. The sidewalks, streets and neighbourhood shopping strips hum as outdoor dining is revived; fairy lights go up, music plays and people arrive with a new energy to enjoy these moments together.  Among the city’s growing restaurants and café scene, creators and crafters can be found. A trail of boutique and award-winning beer, cider and spirits is emerging and each stop promises a discovery worth writing home about. If gin is your tipple, take a tour with That Spirited Lot Distillers to discover the inspiration behind their flavours.

More people are realising that Frankston is a destination drawcard for those yearning for more. More than just the beach holiday. More than just an escape to nature. More than just an inner-city experience. Frankston embraces its regional connections while celebrating its revitalisation into a metropolitan destination full of fun, fresh and authentic experiences across the year.
