Panoramic View (Post#20) : Melbourne Central Business District
One of the things that I really like when I live abroad is to walk around in the place with my camera. As there are lot of places to explore in Melbourne and its surrounding area, I did some research until I found something about Bayside. It is a city at the southern Melbourne which scopes the suburbs beside the coastal area such as Beaumaris, Black Rock, Brighton, Brighton East, Cheltenham, Hampton, Hampton East, Highett and Sandringham. When I was about to leave Melbourne last December 2013, I grabbed a chance to walk along the coastal of these suburbs. I took the photo above of Melbourne CBD almost near in Royal Brighton Yacht Club.
When I returned to Melbourne for my 3rd assignment, I had only few times to getaway from work because of busy schedules in the project that I’d been working with. One of the places that I quickly visited is the bathing house in Brighton Beach. The said bathing houses along the beach are quite famous as it become part of history from 18th to 19th century.

After enjoying Arthurs Seat for entertaining picnic, without any plan we dropped by at Brighton Beach before ending our day. Brighton is one of the suburbs of Melbourne in Victoria Australia. Every time I heard Brighton, one thing that comes to my mind, none other than colorful Bathing Boxes. Brighton Beach is one of the area belongs to Bayside in Melbourne that I am trying to finish the coastline walk.
Without further ado, we drove down to Brighton Beach from Arthurs Seat, it took a while before we reach the place and when we arrived there, it’s almost sunset. What we were trying to explore in the beach was to find the colorful bathing boxes that still existing in the area. As per history, there are more than thousand bathing boxes before, but nowadays, there are few left because most of the bathing houses were relocated, removed and destroyed from time to time, until the remaining bathing boxes in Brighton beach considered it as historical place as of today.
Colorful Bathing Boxes at Brighton Beach
We found the lineup of bathing boxes and we enjoyed the scenery because of the colorful bathing houses with different arts painted on it. We took our time to enjoy the view while taking the photos. We saw similar people like us who just dropped by in the area just to see and take pictures of historical bathing boxes. Aside from enjoying colorful bathing boxes, we also enjoyed the sunset views in the area.
This was the last stop we had for that day and decided to part our ways hoping that next adventure will happen soon.
