On the third day of our trip, we head over to one of the most popular attractions in Melbourne, Brighton Beach! Brighton Beach is also known as the home to the famous 82 colourful bathing boxes.
From the place we stayed (Abbotsford) to Brighton Beach took us approximately one hour as we need to change from tram to train and 20 minutes of walk to the beach. But, I do enjoy the train ride as I got to see the breathtaking beach flew pass quickly through the window.
After we have arrived at Brighton Station, we got to walk a distance to the beach. On our way there, we first passed by Church Street which is a good spot for shopping, food-hunt or simply taking in the atmosphere of the vibrant strip.
Aside from that, Brighton also houses some of the wealthiest citizens in Melbourne with grand homes. Take your time to admire these gorgeous houses. Not to mention, these houses usually have gorgeous gardens!! Look at these beautiful florals we get to see along the way!

After the scenic walk in the neighborhood, finally we get to see the beach. As we get closer to the beach, the breeze also gets chillier. After a few shots of the beach, we decided to sit on the bench and enjoy our packed lunch, homemade toasts.
We are also lucky enough to observe how people do kitesurfing!
After our lunch, we walked towards the bathing boxes for some instagram shots. If you have been to Whitby, England, then the scenery is not uncommon for you!
After we have checked out the gorgeous colourful bathing boxes, we walked to the pier where you can see views of the Melbourne city skyline. Since Brighton pier is pretty far away from the city, you couldn’t see it that clearly compared to St Kilda Pier. However, it is still worth a walk to enjoy the ocean view, breeze, and check out how people fish.
Of course how can we head back to the city without having fish and chips! I got to admit Australia has the best fish and chips! I’m not even joking! I remembered I once visited the most well-known fish and chips restaurant in the U.K and it doesn’t taste that good compared to the one I took in Cicerello’s, Fremantle. And during this trip, the one I took right opposite the Brighton Pier has once proven that Australia serves delicious fish and chips!!!
We ordered a pack for 2 person and we were so satisfied after the meal!! P.S the shop is a small takeaway shop. It’s nothing fancy but the food matters the most, right!
