Brighton Beach Tours

star-5
38 Reviews
Brighton Beach
A Melbourne icon located in Port Phillip Bay, Brighton Beach boasts golden sand and 82 distinctive bathing boxes. The brightly painted, timber-framed huts date back to the Victorian ages and serve as one of the city’s most photogenic backdrops. 

The Basics 
Walk the shores of one of Melbourne’s top spots and enjoy the beachy environs, whether on your own or on a tour. Some comprehensive sightseeing tours combine the bathing boxes with stops at St. Kilda, which is home to the rides and attractions at Luna Park, and other Melbourne highlights such as Royal Botanic Gardens and Arts Centre. Or, visit Bright Beach in conjunction with Phillip Island, where you can watch penguins return home at sunset. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • Brighton Beach is a must-visit for families, beach lovers, and keen photographers. 
  • Though the boardwalk above the beach is wheelchair accessible, Brighton Beach itself is not. 
  • There are several kiosks selling water, snacks, and ice cream on the beach itself. 

How to Get There 
Brighton Beach is located only 7 miles (11 kilometers) from Melbourne's central business district, along the southeast edge of Port Phillip Bay. Public trams, trains, and buses run from central Melbourne to Brighton Beach; bus Nos. 216 and 219, and trains on the Sandringham line are the most convenient options.

When to Get There
The summer months of December, January, and February prove perfect for sunbathing and swimming on Brighton Beach; however, they also draw the largest crowds. For unobstructed photos of the bathing boxes, reach the beach before 10am. 

Phillip Island 
About 79 miles (127 kilometers) from Brighton Beach is Phillip Island, a nature reserve that’s most famous for its nightly penguin parade, when thousands of Australia’s smallest penguin breed waddle back to their beachside burrows after a day at sea. View the natural phenomenon from three different viewing areas inside the reserve. Book in advance to guarantee entry; bundle your ticket with other of the island's eco-tourism offerings for savings.
