Brighton is an affluent coastal suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 11 km south-east of Melbourne’s central business district.
Dendy Street Beach is famous for its colourful Victorian beach huts (“bathing boxes” to the locals). Brighton’s beaches provide a clean, safe swimming area with views of the city. It has limited surf, but good wind and is a prime destination for kitesurfers.
At The Baths restaurant in Middle Brighton, salt-crusted rainbow trout from Victoria’s Goulburn Valley is on the menu or a bistro meal from Bistro La Provence. Perched above the water on the beachfront esplanade with beautiful sunset views across Port Phillip Bay, these venues are perfect for cocktails or a relaxed evening meal.
The residence here feels very connected to the beach, the lifestyle and most importantly, the community. It is a safe and friendly place where a visit to the shops or cafes always means bumping into a neighbour, colleague or friend. Bayside Melbourne is self sufficient in terms of offering local professional expertise, specialist medical services, private and public Hospitals. Brighton is surrounded by world famous sand belt golf courses, and easy access to both the CBD and the Peninsula. Some of Melbourne’s top grammar or public schools are found here, so truly a marvellous area to put down some roots and watch your family blossom over many happy years.
