Events

Sandcastles, carnivals and other events

We love a great event! In summer, Frankston’s famous sand sculptures and sandcastles create a giant fantasy land. In winter, go on a truffle hunt in the hinterland and taste this black gold.

There are traditional summer carnivals for kids at Rosebud and Rye, opera and high tea for grownups and weekly markets for everyone. If you’re into food and wine, be warned: your cup (and plate) will runneth over with wine and food dinners, cooking classes, foraging and gourmet events.

If art and music feed your soul, check out the art exhibitions, music, dance and theatre, especially at Frankston Arts Centre.
