Map of Frankston, VIC 3199

Frankston ( FRANK-stən) is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Located 41 km (25 mi) south-east of the Melbourne city centre, it is in the local government area of the City of Frankston and serves as its administrative and activity centres.

Positioned on the eastern shoreline of Port Phillip, Frankston became a popular seaside destination of Melbourne in the 1880s. Its beach continues to be one of the most frequented in Victoria, and is recognised as one of the cleanest in Australia. Due to its proximity to the north of the eponymous wine and tourism region, the suburb is also referred to as the "gateway to the Mornington Peninsula".

The traditional custodians of the lands on which Frankston is situated are the Boonwurrung people of the Kulin nation, to which it was an important source of fish and meeting place of the Mayone-bulluk clan for around 40,000 years. Colonisation of the area by Europeans began at approximately the same time as the foundation of Melbourne in 1835 and started as an informal fishing outpost supplying the growing settlement. It was formally established in 1854, when official land sales for a new village first took place on 29 May, and has subsequently given its name to its broader local government area since 1893.

Neighbourhood areas within the suburb are Frankston Central, Frankston East, Frankston Heights, Karingal, Long Island, Mount Erin and Olivers Hill. At the 2021 census, Frankston had a population of 37,331. Its demonym is Frankstonian.
