    We came in the hottest day on Dec 14. Beautiful beaches with unique decorated huts along the beach. You can take a nice picture la and the beach is clean and crowded. Lots of flies which I don’t really like. Nothing you can expect like food or drinks on sell there.. BYO!

    Adds interest and colours to an otherwise featureless beach.

    Originally constructed for a time where bikini is considered indecent. This is for those who still want to change into bikini. However they can only sit within the bathing house and watch from there.

    Now instead of looking out, we look in. Kind of.

    In the less touristy months this beach is a pleasant one to walk along, especially in the morning. There is a mix of the locals getting their morning swims or runs in, walkers, people walking their dogs and a few tourists taking photos of the bathing boxes.

    It is sandwiched between a few noteworthy areas: Green Point [see separate review], Hollows Beach, the Brighton Gardens and Brighton Beach. It is also the home of the very famous Brighton Bathing Boxes [see separate view].

    When the tide is out you can walk from one end to the other and cross over into the other beaches. This beach has stunning backdrops of the city skyline, the bathing boxes and the bay itself. The sunsets are spectacular too.

    Note: there is no carpark here, so off street parking [1hr] is suggested or take the local train or park at Green point which has a large, yet expensive carpark.

    Worth a few visits at different times of day.

    The ducks are fairly tame and walked right up to me. Others were feeding them and they assumed I had something to share as well. This Saturday morning saw families with picnics and parties, plus others just walking around. It is a large park with space for everyone and all sorts of activities. The lake watchers and playground users were fairly busy.

    I love the Dendy park walking area as it is so dog friendly. There is an excellent amount of off-leash area so both doggies and humans can get some exercise and the socialising aspect for dogs is excellent. It’s great to be able to throw a ball for your dog on a large oval as well, very good exercise area.

    You can walk either way from this reserve and my grandchildren loved the play area. Apparently the concil have plans to upgrade the equipment as well so should be even better.

    This long stretch of opens space runs along the Beach Road and provides a small distance between the beach and the busy Beach Road (Esplanade). It is well maintained and has a cycle path (not used as they prefer the road and messing up the the traffic ). The area provides scope for pleasant walking.

    During the 2020 Bushfire emergency, Trinity Church provided my Humanitarian agency with the use of their airconditioned hall in order for our organisation to be able to process, create and collate thousands of hygiene and relief kits for weary Fire Fighters and First Responders on the fire frontlines. The hall accommodated hundreds of our volunteers every day from all walks of life and generously provided us shelter amidst scorching temperatures and smoke haze outdoors. Our gratitude to this assistance is boundless. Jacqueline Pascarl, CEO, Operation Angel

    It was an interesting walk around the cemetery, seeing the graves of notables, the notorious, and those who died tragically. We learned a lot about General Monash, the Collier family of philanthropists, and Tommy bent's daughter Elizabeth Bleazby.

    In the early morning there are many out here with their dogs. It is a pleasant park with playing fields, public toilets, shady paths, some seating and the Council is also trying to improive the habitat for native wildlife.

    St Stephen's Anglican Church is a brick and tile structure, built in the between the wars period. It is utilitarian rather than beautiful, although it has some attractive stained glass windows. There's a help-yourself garden. There are also some well-grown trees on North Road.

    The Jim Willis Reserve is next to the Brighton Foreshore Reserve and extends for 1km to the North. It is well known for its remnant vegetation, Fairy Wrens, six Skink species, historical dunes, and an aboriginal midden. From the road the views of the distant city are also impressive.
