While staying at Carrum Downs Holiday Park be sure to visit nearby Frankston for a good dose of arts and culture!

Renowned for arts and culture, a visit to Frankston is not complete without a photo at McClelland Gallery & Sculpture Park . Take a stroll through the 16 hectare park to view over 90 diverse sculptures set in native bushland, then relax in the gallery café.

Delve back into history in Frankston’s two significant historic homesteads, the 1855 French style homestead Ballam Park and 1920’s American colonial mansion Mulberry Hill which was the home of the late Sir Daryl and Lady Joan Lindsay, author of Picnic at Hanging Rock.

No need to travel to Melbourne for a fun night out, as the 800 seat theatre at the Frankston Arts Centre provides a memorable range of entertainment at an affordable price. You can also dine first class prior to your show.
