FRANKSTON is the third-best tourist destination in the state, according to a public vote.
At the 2023 Victorian Top Tourism Town Awards, Frankston won the bronze award for best town with a population of more than 5000 people. It is the second year running Frankston has taken out the bronze in that category. Ballarat and Bendigo won gold and silver respectively.
Frankston mayor Nathan Conroy said the result reflected a “new energy” in Frankston.
“We’re seeing this in the crafters and innovators that are setting up shop and bringing life to the street. It’s not just businesses, but also families who are flocking to this bayside destination to enjoy the best of all worlds,” he said.
“Frankston holds a special place in the hearts of both residents and visitors. We are so humbled that so many people chose to vote for Frankston to support the work we are doing to keep the city progressing into the future.”
The awards are determined by public voting.
