3199 BeachPatrol Covering the Frankston Beaches

3199 BeachPatrol
A finalist in several Keep Australia Beautiful's Clean Beach Awards as well as being named Victoria's Most Popular Beach, Frankston also plays host to the IRONMAN Asia-Pacific Championship and is home to Sand Sculpting Australia. 

With the assistance of Frankston City Council, 3199 Beach Patrol was founded in March 2015 With a view to sustain our local beach environment whilst protecting our delicate and unique Port Phillip marine ecosystem. 

3199 Beach Patrol's group of dedicated volunteers meet on the third Saturday of each month to clean our much loved Frankston beach. We provide a friendly and rewarding opportunity for people of all ages to participate in not only making a visual difference, but also helping to protect Port Phillip.
