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. 

Sponsorship and donation enquiries welcome via the Contact link on our website or by emailing 3199@beachpatrol.com.au New Members are always invited to register for 3199 Beach Patrol via the New Member Sign Up tab on our website.

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol January 2017 Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au

As the late great Ritchie Benaud use to say, "A marvellous day here..." and although he may have been talking about conditions at the MCG, he could well have been speaking about Frankston's beautiful Wells Street Beach

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol December 2016 Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au

I am so very very proud of the amazing network of volunteers and sponsors we have at 3199 Frankston Beach Patrol and as a resident, I have to say despite my involvement, it is really reassuring to know that our community has such passion and commitment such as what I saw today - 35 volunteers, 11 businesses and 1 local Government all combining to help remove 73Kgs of litter from Frankston's main foreshore. On top of that, we were also honoured to be allowed to use Coast Guard Frankston's VF1 HQ to host our Christmas BBQ and even more lucky  to have a number of Coast Guard volunteers give up their time to prepare and cook the food for us. This is the greatest showing of a community working together for a much greater cause and I feel I am so lucky and fortunate to be a part of this wonderful City that is Frankston.

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol November 2016 Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au

It was an absolutely perfect day for a beach clean up in Frankston today as we were joined down at Olivers Hill by Sea Shepherd's Mornington Peninsula chapter of their Marine Debris Campaign to help us not only beat our previous record, but smash it right out of the water - pun intended!!!
