"Don't judge a book by its cover...."

We are a family with young children and bought our place in October 2008. We haven't looked back. The neighbours are fantastic - friendly and watchful. There are 2 primary schools, a kinder and a secondary school. There are plenty of parks to play in. The air is clean. There is a fantastic national park where the views across the bay are stunning. There is plenty of wildlife. The houses are affordable and even come with a BACKYARD!! The beach is a 15 minute walk, the train a 10 minute walk.And if you want to get some exercise, try taking a walk around the suburb - it is hillier than you realise and certainly gets the blood moving. All of this for under 300k. Can't praise it highly enough. Beats renting in St.Kilda (like we did prior to buying) any day! Only thing I dislike is that I didn't discover it earlier.

virusvaleria great to hear!! i am in my early 30s, married, no kdis and moved here in 2007 after living in ripponlea in a tiny one bedroom apartment.

Can you believe how much you get for the money you pay down in Frankton North?? Its amazing to hear other people feel just like us feel.

Now its just a matter of getting rid of the scummier bits of it.... hard work...
YoungFamily I think Frankston North has got to be the best value for money suburb in Melbourne! Where else can you buy a house and yard for under 300k and so close to the beach?! People that build/buy out in the new estates, miles from anywhere and with no infrastructure in sight have rocks in their head (in my humble opinion anyway!).

The suburb is ever changing and it is great to see all the renovations and work being done around the place. Keep it up everyone!
AdamS Fantastic review YoungFamily!!
