Frenchville is a suburban area of Rockhampton in Queensland, Australia. Situated at the base of the Berserker Range about seven kilometres to the north of the Fitzroy River, the district was named for Anthelme Thozet, first director of the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens in the 1860s. Frenchman's Creek which runs through the area was also named for Thozet. At the 2006 census, Frenchville had a population of 8,927.Census 2006 AUS

The area was completely rural in character until the late 1960s, with small holdings and dairy farms predominating. A State primary school was established in 1900. In the late 1960s suburban development rapidly took place and the small school rapidly grew to an enrolment of well over 1,000 in the late 1970s.
