Frenchville, a residential suburb of North Rockhampton, is 3 km north-east of the city centre. It was named in about 1925 after Frenchman's Creek, a minor stream running from Mount Archer to the Fitzroy River. The creek's name came about from a French botanist' Anthelme Thozet, who established a pioneering garden of tropical plants in the 1860s.
