Frankston City

This entry is about the Frankston local government area.

Frankston and Hastings Shire on the Mornington Peninsula, the forerunner of Frankston city, was formed on 31 May, 1893, by severance from Mornington Shire. It retained the name Mornington, and the residue of Mornington Shire was named New Mornington. Such an ambiguous situation did not last for long, and the names were changed to Frankston and Hastings Shire and Mornington Shire in 1894.
