With a Japanese guest in tow this was one of the places on her Aussie bucket list.
Luckily we had beautiful weather and enjoyed a few hours taking photos in front of the many colorful bathing boxes. There are many to choose from and all the tourists were very polite with lining up (only at some) to get photos taken.

We also went in for a swim, water was chilly but good fun.

There was an ice cream van and the life saving club was open. Parking at the beach was $5.40/hr or $17/day.

Bring a picnic and a blanket and you could easily spend a day here in good weather at little cost.

Nothing much other than the bath houses. Hordes of visitors rather than the locals so felt like a tourist trap rather than a local beach. Just go there for your bath house photos and head for the nearby Brighton restaurant or coffee house!

We stopped by before starting our road trip along the GOR. It was nice to see the brightly coloured beach houses along the beach, which was the attraction of this place. Good place if u are into sunbathing and just want to spend time by the beach.

Many, many people take their dogs here all days, times of the week. We used to go Sunday AM. Also spent New Year's Eve there with our dog. Fantastic evening. Photo attached. People are friendly. Unruly dogs are frowned upon and owners are expected to maintain control of their pets. Four or five entrance gates have free doggie pick up bags at the gate. Wish everyone would take responsibility to use them. Low tide can have some aroma from the tidal weeds. High tide is a clean groomed beach. Many happy hours spent here.

The beach itself is nice, and definitely an Instagramable spot. But it was crowded. Not recommend for the quiet seekers.
