The City of Frankston is a Local Government Area in Victoria, Australia. It is located in the southern suburbs of Melbourne. It has an area of 131 square kilometres. In 2001 it had a population of 113,000. By 30 June 2005 this had grown to 120,562, at an average annual growth rate of 1.4% from 2000 to 2005. Between 2004 and 2005, the City of Frankston was the 20th fastest growing Local Government Area in Victoria (percentage growth), and the 10th largest growing (raw numerical increase). In 1994 the City expanded by merging with parts of the Shire of Cranbourne.

The City is located on the eastern shores of Port Phillip. It consists of the flatter north and eastern Frankston, and the wealthier and hillier granite uplands of Frankston South to the south. The civic centre has grown rapidly in the 80's and 90's and now contains several interlocking malls and department stores sprawling over the CBD.

The City is bounded on the north by the City of Kingston and the City of Greater Dandenong, on the east by the City of Casey, and on the south by the Shire of Mornington Peninsula. The boundaries of the City are defined largely on the north by the Eel Race Drain and Thompsons Road, on the east by the Dandenong-Hastings Road, and on the south by a complex boundary featuring Baxter-Tooradin Road, Golf Links Road and Humphries Road.

An aging population in older areas near the centre is balanced by several new housing estates on the fringes and eastern margins of the city.

Frankston Pier is one of the more prominent landmarks, and the summer weekends will find young children dive-bombing off it, in contravention of local by-laws.

The City of Frankston was originally the Shire of Frankston and Hastings. Hastings later split-off. As part of the Kennett Government's program of municipal consolidation, in 1994 the municipality's boundaries were extended in the east to take over parts of Skye and Langwarrin from the abolished City of Cranbourne (now part of the City of Casey). However in the south the municipality lost the suburb of Mount Eliza to the newly created Shire of Mornington Peninsula.
