A tour of Frankston with a twist
Settled amongst the hustle and bustle of the Frankston CBD is a catalyst of art projects hidden among back streets, alleyways and car parks. Blink and you might miss them, but we promise these artworks are not ones to be missed!
Bayside Shopping Centre
The Bayside Shopping Centre and surrounding laneways is where the graffiti is really happening around Frankston. With so many laneways and malls weaving around the centre, is the perfect place to have a leisurely stroll around and check out the insanely talented artwork from the locals.
A little bit further out from the shopping centre, but close enough to Bayside Shopping Centre that you can make a walking tour out if it, is the Frankston Library. The library has been completely transformed into a book lovers paradise, with stacked books adorning the side, and favourite characters from Alice in Wonderland to be found too.
If you'd prefer the warmth of indoors, and art that can be hung on a wall (compared to art on a wall!), you'll enjoy the array of art displayed at Cube 37. Cube 37 sits right next to the Frankston Arts Centre, a smaller adjoining building hosting the best of what local artists have to offer. A whole range of different art is showcased here, from paintings to sculptures, to digital art. There is a new showcase and exhibition every few months so it is worth checking out as the season's change.
You can take a self-guided tour through all the wonderful artwork Frankston has to offer, or you can book a guided tour of Frankston's graffiti here.
