Paul acknowledges the traditional owners of the land which is now the Frankston electorate, the Mayone-bulluk clan of Bunurong people of the Kulin Nations. Bunurong territory is large and extends from Werribee to Wilsons Promontory, it includes the entirety of the Mornington Peninsula. The Bunurong, or Boonerwrung people once lived, sustainably as hunter-gatherers, for over 40,000 years. Aboriginal cultural heritage is invaluable to the history of Frankston and you can find more information about the cultural heritage here.
Now, the Frankston electorate consists of a diverse population and is home to a large business precinct, university and TAFE campuses, both private and public hospitals and bayside beaches. Situated at the end of the Frankston train line, it is the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula. The Frankston Waterfront, with it’s famous Sand Sculptures and yearly festival, has proven to be a positive draw-card for many visitors to the district.
