Frankston is a seaside suburb of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia, located in the local government area of the City of Frankston. It is 41 km south of the Melbourne city centre, near the northernmost point of the Mornington Peninsula. Due to its geographic location, it is often referred to as "the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula".European settlement of Frankston began immediately after the foundation of Melbourne in 1835—as an unofficial fishing village serving the early Melbourne township. Prior to its settlement, the Frankston area was populated primarily by the Mayone-bulluk clan from the Bunurong tribe of the Kulin nation. A new village at Frankston was officially established after formal land sales took place in 1853, and was named following a survey of the area in early 1854. It became a part of the metropolitan area of Melbourne as a result of the urban agglomeration of the metropolis during the 1940s. Today, Frankston lends its name to the broader local government area of the City of Frankston and serves as its major activity and administrative centre.
