Middle Brighton Baths to Brighton Bathing Boxes
Starting from the southern car park of 'The Baths', Brighton, this return walk takes you to the Brighton Bathing Boxes, passing by Brighton Beach along the way. Immerse yourself in the waters of Port Phillip Bay while admiring the iconic sight of 82 bathing boxes (each one different from the others) adorning Brighton Beach. These wooden structures were built more than a hundred years ago, reflecting the Victorian era's seaside bathing traditions. While their classic Victorian architectural style remains intact, each box showcases individual artistic touches and vibrant decorations added by their owners over the years. Middle Brighton Baths, on the other end, weren't so lucky and got destroyed by a storm in 1934. There's now a restaurant in their place called 'The Baths'. One of the most famous beaches in Melbourne, Brighton Beach is home to many activities, such as paragliding and kite surfing. And of course, swimming and sunbathing are more than enough to enjoy this lovely location. The journey is also wheelchair-friendly until the bathing boxes. Dogs are allowed on lead only along the track unless otherwise specified. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
