Frankston is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is a seaside suburb on Port Phillip Bay, 41 km southeast of Melbourne CBD. Open, sandy beaches are found on the western side of Frankston. As the northernmost city on the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston is sometimes known as "The Gateway to the Peninsula". The weather in Frankston is mild.

A light industrial area, mostly involving the automotive repair industry, is located along Dandenong Road centering around New Street. The area also spills over into the neighbouring suburb of Seaford, and centres around Hartnett Drive. The Seaford industrial area also contains some bulk retail and cash-and-carry outlets.

The dominant residential nature of the suburb is not as diverse as suburbs closer to the Melbourne CBD. There is very little multi-storey residential development, although with the designation of the Frankston CBD as a Transit City in accordance with the Victorian Government's Melbourne 2030 urban integration policy, there has been an increased focus on residential development in the CBD.

Australian rules football is played at many clubs in the area, at both senior and junior level. St Kilda's new “Footy First” board is already making its presence felt at the club, today announcing the Saints will shift their training base from Moorabbin to Frankston Park in 2010.
