Here are a few of our local favourites we know you will enjoy – all part of your City of Kingston!

Bayside Shopping Centre 
Location: 28 Beach Street Frankston 
Phone: 03 9771 1700
From the words of the customer service team at Bayside Shopping Centre, ‘how can we help you?’ To many of us, this is going to be a great day out and for us here at Patterson Lakes, it is only 10km away. So why not plan a day out with a fellow resident, friends or family. You could start your day with a coffee catch up, invite your grandchildren for a morning play or stroll the mall for some much-needed retail therapy. Take a pit stop at Gloria Jeans and enjoy a freshly baked pastry and hot coffee. Take a rest from all that window shopping and walking. Pop your feet up in Gold Class to watch the latest flick, accompanied by your favourite drink and a light lunch. No need to move, they serve it straight to you! Or if you do have you ‘little friends’ with you, why not have a hit and giggle at Holey Moley Golf Club or knock a pin or two at Strike Bowling. By now you might be ready to go home, so why not grab a takeaway dinner at Grill’d and continue the day back at your place. This shopping centre is so much more than the daily groceries! 

Bonbeach Surf Life Saving Club & Beach
Location: Beach Reserve Lord Weaver Grove Bonbeach
Phone: 03 9776 0810
Our residents are absolutely spoiled being just 7km from this stunning beach! Bonbeach Beach spans 1.5km beginning at the northern Patterson River entrance wall and merging with adjoining Chelsea Beach to the north. This is a perfect location to spend the day with family and friends. Why not pop your umbrella up in a nice little possie right out front of the Surf Life Saving Club? Take a stroll with the soft sand between your toes, put your feet in the water, take a dip in the shallow sections of the inner bay, then relax beachside under the rays and get some good old Vitamin D. And for those who love to get their fishing rods out, we hear the river mouth is the spot to get the ‘best catch’ – maybe keep that one to yourself wink wink…


Mr Patterson Cafe

A cosy feel, modern décor, friendly staff and yummy menu is what you can expect at this café. Why not miss breakfast today and catch up with a friend, as we hear their brunch menu is not to be missed – how good, two meals in one! Mmmm what will you have today, enjoy a Sweet Sunrise Smoothie, a wholesome and healthy Granola or will you go all the way and try their Big Breakfast? 


Patterson River Golf Club
