Main Attraction

Situated in one of Melbourne’s wealthiest suburbs, Brighton Beach refers to three different sections of beach along Port Phillip Bay: Upper Brighton Beach, Middle Brighton Beach and Dendy Street Beach. Middle Brighton features historic sea baths and the Middle Brighton Pier. The most famous spot is undoubtedly Dendy Street Beach, which is home to a line of more than 80 colorful beach huts, Brighton’s famous “bathing boxes.”

The iconic, heritage-protected bathing boxes are nearly identical in their rudimentary design and building materials. They all have a wooden frame, weatherboard sides and corrugated-iron roof, but the similarities stop there. All of them are painted in a range of bold, beautiful and flamboyant designs that form a spectacular wall of color along the beach. Don’t forget your camera; these quaint structures are a photographer’s dream. The bathing boxes are a vestige from the modest Victorian times when they provided a place for bathers to change clothing in privacy. Nowadays, people can buy an annual license for a bathing box. On weekends many licensees will have their huts open, allowing beach-goers a peek inside. Despite their petite size, the bathing boxes are highly sought after.

The beaches of Brighton generally have very calm water and are patrolled by lifeguards, which make them a safe place to swim. Just inland from the beaches there are plenty of grassy foreshore reserves to have a picnic, kick a ball or relax. Pull on your running shoes or bike helmet; separate walking and cycling paths run the length of Port Phillip Bay and provide great vistas of the bay and city skyline. Be sure to pack a hat, sunscreen and to drink plenty of water when in the sun. Brighton Beach is easily accessible via bus or the Sandringham train that runs along the suburbs of Port Phillip Bay into downtown Melbourne. Brighton Beach is about a 30-minute drive from downtown Melbourne and there’s a user-pay car park nearby.

About Melbourne, Victoria State.

Melbourne is the capital and most-populous city of the Australian state of Victoria, and the second-most populous city in Australia and Oceania. Its name refers to an urban agglomeration of 9,993 km (3,858 sq mi), comprising a metropolitan area with 31 municipalities, and is also a common name for its city centre. The city occupies much of the coastline of Port Phillip bay and spreads into the Hinterland towards the Dandenong and Macedon ranges, Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. It has a population of 5 million (19% of the population of Australia), and its inhabitants are commonly referred to as “Melburnians”.[note 2]

Home to Indigenous Australians for over 40,000 years, the Melbourne area served as a popular meeting place for local Kulin nation clans. A short-lived penal settlement was established at Port Phillip, then part of the British colony of New South Wales, in 1803, but it was not until 1835, with the arrival of free settlers from Van Diemen’s Land (modern-day Tasmania), that Melbourne was founded.[13] It was incorporated as a Crown settlement in 1837, and named after the then British Prime Minister, William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne.[13] In 1851, four years after Queen Victoria declared it a city, Melbourne became the capital of the new colony of Victoria.[14] During the 1850s Victorian gold rush, the city entered a lengthy boom period that, by the late 1880s, had transformed it into one of the world’s largest and wealthiest metropolises.[15][16] After the federation of Australia in 1901, it served as the interim seat of government of the new nation until Canberra became the permanent capital in 1927.[17] Today, it is a leading financial centre in the Asia-Pacific region and ranks 15th in the Global Financial Centres Index.[18]

Melbourne is home to many of Australia’s best-known landmarks, such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria and the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building. Noted for its cultural heritage, the city gave rise to Australian rules football, Australian impressionism and Australian cinema, and has more recently been recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature and a global centre for street art, live music and theatre. It hosts major annual international events, such as the Australian Grand Prix and the Australian Open, and also hosted the 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Melbourne consistently ranked as the world’s most liveable city for much of the 2010s.[19]

Melbourne Airport, also known as Tullamarine Airport, is the second busiest airport in Australia, and the city’s port is the nation’s busiest seaport.[20] Its main metropolitan rail terminus is Flinders Street station and its main regional rail and road coach terminus is Southern Cross station. It also has Australia’s most extensive freeway network and the largest urban tram network in the world.[21]
