Beginning near Brighton's famed bathing boxes, this delightful 12km walk traces the Bay Trail all the way to Port Melbourne via Elwood and St Kilda. A great, Melbourne day out!
This walk takes in one of Melbourne's most iconic and most photographed sites; the Brighton Bathing boxes. It then snakes along the popular Bay Trail for 12km - past Point Ormond, Elwood, Luna Park, St Kilda Pier all the way to Port Melbourne.
START this public-transport-friendly walk from Middle Brighton train station on the Sandringham Line (Black Street, Brighton).
You may wish to finish your adventure with a meal of Fish and Chips as you watch the big vessels roll into Station Pier.
Thanks to photographer Jim Zapsalis (@Walking_Perspective) for allowing us to use his photographs for some of the stops along this great bayside walk. See more of Jim's photos at the link.
These little wooden huts can fetch upwards of $300,000 at auction! They're easy to spot after you make your way down onto the beach.
