Welcome to the Frankston North community website.
Frankston North is a small locality, forming part of the municipality of the Frankston City Council in the southern bayside suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, and on the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula. It is located and is approximately five minutes drive from the Frankston Central Activity District and one hour drive from the Melbourne CBD.
The area was once a pine plantation and it is from that heritage that Frankston North is also known locally as The Pines.
