Suburb Overview

Frankston South is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 43 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Frankston. At the 2006 Census, Frankston South had a population of 17,360.

Sharing the same postcode as Frankston, it is however considered a separate suburb.

After the settlement of Melbourne in 1835, James Davey took up a large land holding in 1846, which extended from Olivers Hill to Daveys Bay. Thomas McComb, who arrived at Frankston in 1852, also purchased much land in what is now the Frankston CBD and its south-east, in 1854. Davey's and McComb's land was subdivided and now forms much of the suburb of Frankston South.

The first temporary post office in Frankston South opened in 1934 to service the first Australian Scout Jamboree. The first permanent post office opened on 27 October 1958.

After the arrival of the railway line in 1882, the Frankston area developed into a popular seaside resort and playground for Melbourne's affluent, with some developing large holiday properties in the area of Frankston South, many of which still stand today.

Frankston South was the site of the first ever Australian Scout Jamboree, in 1935, which was attended by the founder of the Scouting movement, Sir Robert Baden-Powell. The site was chosen for its proximity to the town of Frankston, distance from Melbourne and its relatively unspoilt natural areas as well as access to the beach.

Several streets in Frankston South are named after the event, and the original grandstand used for the jamboree remained a historic landmark at Frankston Park for 72 years, until it was destroyed by fire on 12 February 2008.

Frankston South is home to the most expensive residential real estate in the City of Frankston, mainly due to its hilly terrain which allows for views of Port Phillip Bay, tree-lined streets, properties built on the edge of Sweetwater Creek Nature Reserve, and large land sub-divisions in the locality's far south.

Olivers Hill, which straddles the suburbs of Frankston and Frankston South, boasts expansive views across Port Phillip Bay to the city of Melbourne and overlooks the Frankston Beach and the Frankston waterfront. Some properties on Olivers Hill have been sold for in excess of A$ 2 million, when the 2005 median price for a house in Frankston was only A$ 228,000 according to The Age newspaper.
