Brighton Beach Boxes


b (1 of 1)
beach-shed-brighton (1 of 1)On my last day in Melbourne a few weeks ago we went to the Brighton Beach Boxes situated on Port Phillip Bay in Brighton at Dendy Street Beach.

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 Bayย 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.

  2. Great photos. I love seeing beach huts all in a row, brightly colored and different from each other but uniform in dimensions. The price of them is ridiculous in Britain too.

  5. Lovely colours, but really, the price for an old shed is ridiculous!

  6. I think the record for one of these was over $200,000, probably the most expensive real estate in Melbourne. I think all the tourists would drive me mad if I had one. You got a great mix of them, and not too many people, considering how many were there.

  7. I love the fantastic colours in these bathing boxes – they remind me of a by- gone era ๐Ÿ˜Š They are hard to photograph without people!

  9. I love beach huts. The ones in England are phenomenally expensive for what they are.
