I am a graphic designer and photographer living in Melbourne, I love to explore in my own back yard, I love write and photograph about my adventures and places I visit. For more of my photos visit my blog https://juliepowell2014.wordpress.com/
I love to travel and explore, in particular around my home town of Melbourne. One of the spots I explored lately was Brighton. There are a lot of interesting things to do and see in Brighton, even in the middle of Winter, including visiting Brighton Main Beach, Brighton Middle Beach and of course, Dendy Street Beach.
Brighton Middle Beach is where the Baths are located. There is also a pier, which is a lovely spot for a stroll as are boardwalks and bike tracks along the beach. If you are looking for something intrinsically Melbourne, head to the Dendy Street Beach and the colourful Bathing Boxes. There are also rock pools to explore here and wide sandy beaches. If beaches are not your thing, visit Bay Street shopping district and the stunning Kamesburgh Gardens.
Brighton has many interesting places and buildings to see and visit, recently I took a Probus Club on a tour of the old buildings all loaded with history.
I have notes of the tour and if at any time that might help you with your next visit.
Thanks for your article I am a country photographer heading to Melbourne for a couple of days. Want some Architecture shots for our club comp and anything else of interest. Any quick ideas. Usually use the train.
