New Frankston Clinic Opening Soon




We are beyond proud and excited to have reached this point in time – to be announcing the opening of our new Frankston Clinic on Thursday 11 July 2024.


Situated at 401-403 Nepean Highway, Frankston our stunning new, purpose-built primary healthcare clinic has been designed, developed and delivered by First Peoples’ Health and Wellbeing to specifically meet the needs of our patients, clients and Communities.


On the ground level, our warm and welcoming clinic spaces accommodate our growing primary healthcare team of Aboriginal Health Practitioners, Nurses, General Practitioners, Psychologists, Social and Emotional Wellbeing Staff, Allied Health Workers and Medical Administration Officers.


Upstairs, looking over the treetops of the surrounding Ghost Gums, is Baluk Balert Barring – Many Strong Footprints – Victoria’s first Aboriginal Early Parenting Centre. Baluk Balert Barring will care for First Nations babies, children and families, providing a culturally-safe model of early parenting care that builds on the strengths of Aboriginal families, Culture and Community.


And at street level, taking advantage of passing foot traffic, we will soon be opening the doors to our new social enterprise café – Blak Fig. Blak Fig will provide vocational training opportunities for local Community, supporting mob who may face barriers to employment to gain qualifications and mentoring in hospitality with an outlook to long-term employment. Check out our socials for the Blak Fig Café Manager job – the first position to be advertised in this growing team.   


We can’t wait to open the doors to our primary healthcare clinic, Baluk Balert Barring and Blak Fig and share these incredible new spaces and services with our patients, clients and Communities. Self-determination is at the heart of First Peoples’ health and wellbeing. This new facility is Aboriginal-owned, designed and delivered – laying the path for First Peoples’ health and wellbeing now and in the future.


We acknowledge and thank the Commonwealth and Victorian Labor Governments for the capital and infrastructure that has enabled the purchase and refurbishment of the building. We will continue to advocate for much-needed operational funding to grow our services and respond to the health and wellbeing needs of Community.
