Bathing boxes along the Brighton beach

Bathing boxes?

Well they are actually beach huts which went way back into the late 19th century when Brighton was the destination beach for many Australians.

These iconic colourful bathing boxes are located on Dendy St beach and the stretch of beach was really pretty despite the gloomy weather in July.

Out of the current 82 bathing boxes (ok some sources say 90), 6 were built by Bayside Council, and the many of the rest were passed down through generations.
