Brighton 
Large homes, leafy streets and colourful bathing boxes by the beach. 

Brighton, Melbourne (south east)

Come to Brighton on a weekend morning and you'll see what this place is all about: establishment with refined accents, big houses, and private schools. Brighton is an affluent, politically conservative, upper middle class, picturesque, family oriented, beach and bayside suburb in Melbourne's south east. It's popular with the over 50s crowd, and has its fair share of matronly style women with big blonde hair, bling and 4WDs (SUVs).  Brighton is a beautiful, safe, suburb with wide leafy streets, big well-kept homes, private schools, good public transport via the train line, and a couple of good bay beaches. Cricketer Shane Warne and some other famous sporty types live here.

One of the best things about Brighton is the beach bathing boxes which draw in the tourists and locals and make for great, super colourful photos. Given the beaches are on the bay, there's no surf here. But it can get windy so if you like a work out, a challenge and the water, then join the dozens of others who like to parasurf here.
