Brighton Bathing Boxes

The Brighton Beach bathing boxes are a row of 82 small, colorful wooden structures located along the shores of Brighton Beach in Melbourne, Australia.

Dating back to the late 19th century, they were originally used for changing into swimwear and storing belongings. Each box is privately owned and cannot be used for overnight stays.

They hold cultural and historical significance and are popular among tourists and locals alike.

The bathing boxes are a symbol of Melbourne’s coastal lifestyle and are well-maintained to preserve their heritage.

The show used various locations around Melbourne to recreate the period setting, and Brighton Beach provided an authentic backdrop for scenes set in the 1920s. The colorful and picturesque bathing boxes added a unique visual element to the show’s aesthetic.

In the episode “Queen of the Flowers” (S1E9) some of the action takes place on Brighton Beach, with Phyrne investigating amongst the bathing boxes.


Brighton Beach is about 14km south of Melbourne CBD and it takes about 30 minutes to drive from there.

If you catch the train to Middle Brighton Station you’ll have a 20 minute walk to the beach.
