Where are the Brighton Beach Huts

The Brighton Beach Huts are located around a 30 minute drive south of Melbourne in a suburb called Brighton. You can also take the train and get off at either Middle Brighton or Brighton Beach and walk from there.

A bit of history behind the Brighton Beach Huts

These wooden huts were built over 100 years ago and have pretty much stayed the same all these years. Over the years, the only things to really change about them are their artistic embellishments! They are a traditional Victorian style hut, built out of timber, weatherboards and have corrugated iron roofs. They are still used to this day! These little boxes sell anywhere between $180K – $300K, is it worth it? the locals certainly think it is (or is it simply bragging rights?).

Why are the huts so popular?

These iconic huts draw many tourists down to take a look. They turn what we could call a very average beach into a hot tourist spot! The array of colourful huts with different patterns makes it a very unique spot to visit.
