Seaford

While the buffer city of Frankston is often described as the gateway to the tastes and sights of the Mornington Peninsula, it is rapidly becoming a resort and Melbourne day-trippers' destination in its own right.

From Seaford in the north, Frankston is graced by 10km of golden beaches on Port Phillip Bay and the thriving city calendar offers a year-long series of concerts, entertainment, cultural events and festivals. The more popular events include the autumn Frankston Guitar Festival, which celebrates every aspect of the instrument from manufacture to busking to classic performance, and the pre-Christmas Festival of Lights which features foreshore fireworks.

Bathing and fishing spots apart, Frankston is also within easy driving distance of the peninsula"s scenic parkland attractions, resort towns, art and craft galleries and celebrated vineyards. At the last count, there were something like 20 producing vineyards on the peninsula.

Seaford: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Patterson River


Patterson River, the gateway to Port Phillip, is a thriving canal system of the Patterson Lakes residential area. There are four public boat ramps, parking for cars and trailers and riverside picnic facilities making it the perfect venue for family boating expeditions. The National Water Sports Centre nearby is used by a wide range of water sport groups.

Heritage
The Patterson River is a man made waterway, created in 1876 to provide direct drainage from the entire Dandenong Valley catchment area. This run-off flowed into the Carrum Swamp, which spread behind the sand dunes between Mordialloc and Frankston with the only outlets to the bay being the Mordialloc Creek and the Kananook Creek at Frankston.

In 1934, 960 houses and farms were inundated by floodwaters. It was then decided to raise the levels of the artificial banks between the bay and Pillars Bridge, south of Dandenong. The river mouth is regularly inspected by Parks Victoria and contractors are employed to dredge the outlet to a safe depth when needed.
