Brighton and Sandringham Beach – Australia

Two of my favorites beaches in Victoria, Australia are Brighton beach (little houses beach) and Sandringham Beach.

Brighton Beach has 82 distinctive bathing boxes, a row of uniformly proportioned wooden structures lining the foreshore at Brighton Beach.

Built well over a century ago in response to very Victorian ideas of morality and seaside bathing, the bathing boxes remain almost unchanged. All retain classic Victorian architectural features with timber framing, and corrugated iron roofs, though they also bear the hallmarks of artistic and colorful embellishments.

Thanks to these distinctive decorations, the boxes turn the Brighton seaside into an immediately recognizable, iconic beach landscape that can transform by the hour according to season, light and color. Just try to resist pulling out your camera and snapping away.


Sandringham Beach is a straight, 2.5 km long beach that faces the southwest. There is a foreshore reserve along this section with parking and picnic facilities. Sandringham Beach is the quietest beach that I visit in Melbourne, definitely recommended to visit.
