The Moon’s Insight | Brighton Bathing Box

You’ve probably seen photos of the Brighton Bathing Boxes. There are a total of 82 distinctive multi-coloured beach huts lining the foreshore of one of Melbourne’s most exclusive neighbourhoods.

While most people visit them as a colourful photo opportunity in Melbourne. The Brighton Bathing Boxes do have a lot of history behind them. In fact, they were built more than 100 years ago when Australians were a little more modest and were used by women for privacy when changing into their swimwear.

While Bayside council has periodically built and sold new boxes in recent years, it is rare for existing boxes to hit the market. They are tightly held, often passed down through generations.
