FRANKSTON FORESHORE
Melbourne
VIC, Australia

I collect at this beach often, as it is my local area. Depending on tides, sometimes you'll get a really good find! At other times, only the lucky will find anything.

Colours found include vast browns and greens, some clear, and a few pieces of blue!
Majority of pieces are well-rounded and frosted.

Rate the beach:

--- Fair- 1 to 4  pieces of jewelry grade sea glass found per hour.


We appreciate this and all reports we receive. However, when evaluating a report, use good judgment.

Note:
  • No photos were included with this report.
  • This beach is in a closed bay - very little wave action, therefore less tumbling and rounding of the glass.
As always, we remind folks that sea glass beach reports are not confirmed by Lin or me at Odyssey Sea Glass unless otherwise stated. Reports that do not include photos of the sea glass found are less reliable. So use your own judgement in deciding whether to travel to a particular beach or not.

A reminder to all: Before evaluating the sea glass found, be sure and refer to the grading chart for "jewelry grade sea glass"

Thank you!

So that's where all the sea glass has been going recently!

I have to agree that this really is a great place to pick up some nice pieces of glass and pottery shards.

I ma have even seen you down there.

I was collecting there a couple of weeks ago and met a "real" hippy who was so impressed with what I was doing that he decided that it was now going to be a favorite past time for him as well.

So now we have MORE competition...oops! Sorry!

Might see you there one day and we can race each other to the next bit for our collection.

Cheers,
