Pines Forest

(3200, 39 km SE, Frankston City)

This area of public housing near Frankston is one of the many estates built by the Housing Commission of Victoria during the 1950s. Pines, as it is more commonly known, is almost dead flat, and wedged between a major road and a private golf course, which tends to isolate residents from Frankston's services and amenities. Some of the houses are now privately owned and have been renovated and personalised, with attractive gardens. The locality also features the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre.
