Happy 41st Anniversary Frankston and Susono!


Today (22nd February) is the 41st anniversary of our sister city relationship which officially commended in 1982 after delegation visits to each city occurred the previous year.

In the ensuing 5 decades there have been many delegation tours, homestay visits, student exchanges, Festivals and Fairs, speech contests, Welcome and Farewell Parties, ceremonies, music, dancing and so much more.

The friendships developed remain as strong as ever, due in no small part to the fact that the relationship is managed by passionate, volunteer citizens in both cities, plus the on-going support of Frankston and Susono City Councils.
