“As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.” ~ Rumi
Frankston is known for its waterfront scene but it is also now becoming the most sought after street art destination. The Big Picture Fest has been running for 5 years now and Frankston has been the playground for local and international mural artists since then.
Last weekend, the sun was out so I prodded Jack to go and search for these giant painted canvases with me. Just quite not sure which ones are new or which ones has been there from previous years.
We parked our car on the 3-hour parking area, I am guessing that by that time we would have finished seeing all the murals
Started with the murals on the facade of the Frankston Library.

Between Braap and Hoyts Cinema in Park Lane, Frankston
A Smug Mural which I am sure has been there since before but it would be nice to feature it again.
On the back wall of some buildings, this mural looks so graceful and it took me by surprise.
On the narrow Wells Lane
Just off Wells Lane is Thompson Lane with all of these giant murals.
Enjoyed viewing the mural , not knowing that my hubby was talking a photo with me on it.
From Stiebel Place we continued walking to Gallery Lane. The sun and shadow is so strong that I can’t seem to capture the image well.
As you can guess by it’s name the Gallery Lane has the most murals in the area.
Going up the ramp to the Wilson’s Car Park
And on the second level of the car park is this view of the murals down below.
Going on to the main road is this public art near the Frankston train station.
About 3 minutes walk is this Flower Girl Mural by Melbourne Murals.
Next and last location to visit was Plaza Lane with these murals right beside each other.
I haven’t seen all of the murals in the 2 and a half hours that we were walking (less the ice cream break and the toilet breaks) but we were tired already so that’s it for us. Maybe next time we can search for those that we missed.
