They are delightfully bright and each one individually painted by each owner. There are 82 of these boxes located on this beach. They all retain Victorian architectural features with timber framing, weatherboards and corrugated iron roofs. They all remain the same as they were about 100 years ago. None of them have running water or electricity yet are a very sought after property with one selling recently for about $172,500 AUD.
All around the Port Phillip Bay area there are about 1,860 of these
quaint looking beach boxes. We didn’t get to see inside to wonder why they are so precious but they certainly did brighten up the surrounding bay on an otherwise not so colourful day.
