Frankston is the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula, combining the best of Melbourne's city life, with beautiful beaches and scenic drives. Frankston Beach is one of the many beaches on this stretch of coast, in hot competition with the alternative coves of Port Phillip Bay. Further beaches can be found in Mornington Peninsula National Park, including the Sorrento Ocean Beach (via the M11). Hiring a car in Frankston is recommended for anyone intent on beach hopping. The Bayside Shopping Centre and Centro Karingal are the two main shopping precincts, with the latter just outside of town.

Anyone who uses Frankston as a base from which to explore Melbourne might be tempted to settle back with a coffee in the famous Block Arcade, and then relax further in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens. Those with a thirst for culture should absorb the renowned artworks in the National Gallery of Victoria. For a scenic daytrip adventure, continue to drive past Melbourne towards Geelong and begin touring Victoria on the Great Ocean Road. If scenic drives are your thing but you don't have time to head that far afield, head for the famous Dandenong Ranges on the M3 (about 50mins from Frankston).

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
