A unique blend of contemporary urban experiences, stunning coastal scenery and hidden bushland gems, all wrapped up with unpretentious pride and quirky hospitality. 

Our location is second to none. Commanding ideal centre-stage between Melbourne’s urban metropolis and the tranquil Mornington Peninsula, we are one of very few blended bush-bay cities, which continues to be a major drawcard for both sea and tree changers, Melbourne commuters and year-round visitors.

Covering an area of 131 km2, Frankston City comprises of nine diverse suburbs, 11 kms of pristine coastline, 21,000+ hectares of open space (over 16 per cent of the total land area), and six distinct industrial precincts.

With the State Government designating Frankston City a vital Metropolitan Activity Centre (the highest order, signifying an area slated for growth), we are experiencing unprecedented change and growth. With a flourishing economy, agile business community, booming industrial sector and robust consumer demand, Frankston City is rife with opportunity.

Whether you're a visitor, resident, investor or developer, we invite you to explore our world of vibrant arts, expansive nature reserves, world-class sporting facilities, inspiring play spaces, vibrant retail and hospitality.

Less than an hour's drive from Melbourne CBD we are an easy day trip to take in an award-winning street art walking tour through our colourful city streets and laneway, find your vibe in a thriving music and cultural arts scene, or be inspired by larger-than-life sculptures and public art displays. 

Be tantalised by diverse culinary treats, and award-winning distilleries nestled in quaint neighbourhood villages, iconic waterfront destinations, funky industrial warehouses or lively city centre streets.

Browse a variety of local markets, stylish boutiques, and regional shopping centres to uncover the latest trends, eclectic bargains, or locally made treasures, and be welcomed by genuine hospitality from passionate retailers. 

Relax in beautifully manicured gardens, reconnect with nature at enclaves of bushland reserves or rediscover your inner child at a variety of adventure playgrounds and indoor attractions. If its history you like, you’ll be fascinated by majestic homesteads and historic trails. 

Or simply take in one of Melbourne’s most remarkable views from the renowned Oliver’s Hill, or anywhere along the continuous foreshore from Frankston to Seaford for that matter. Frankston City’s bayside location offers uninterrupted world class views across Port Phillip to Melbourne City and the distant You Yangs, and is a popular playground for adrenalin seeking water sports enthusiasts and family beach activities.

The opportunities are endless. So escape the everyday on a Frankston City discovery and imagine the possibilities.
