The city centre's urban landscape began to transform with The Big Picture Fest launch in 2018, bringing some of the world's best street artists to Frankston. Painting over the course of a week, they brought a huge jolt of colour to the central core. Since then this annual street art event has brought more and more international, national and local artists to Frankston, creating an epic outdoor gallery.
The fun does not stop when the tour is over. Frankston, right on Port Philip Bay, boasts a vibrant promenade next to calm blue waters that are perfect for water sports, swimming or simply relaxing. Natural attractions, markets, boardwalks and historic homesteads will help you build up a thirst, and the evolving boutique beer, wine and spirits trail will keep you quenched.
When the sun shines so does the foodie scene. The sidewalks, streets and neighbourhood shopping strips hum before fairy lights go up, music plays and locals join in with new energy that will make you want to stay a while longer to enjoy the Frankston vibe.
Where? Through the streets, laneways and arty precincts that make up Frankston, on Port Philip Bay in far south east Melbourne.
