Since Victorian times, Brighton Beach has been home to some of Australia’s most recognisable buildings. As some of Melbourne ’s oldest structures, the beloved Dendy Street Beach boxes in Brighton have stood the test of time – watching over Melbourne ’s bay since the 1860s.

Hannah Catchpole, the general manager of the Royal Brighton Yacht Club, said no-one at the club knew anything until they saw the police gathering outside.

“When any incident happens on or around the beach, the yacht club is always very concerned to know what it is," she said.

“We’re just waiting to see if we can be of any assistance.”

Local resident Charles, 50, said it wasn't a dangerous area at all.

“It’s a bit unusual not knowing what happened. Whether it’s someone who’s washed up or something bad’s happened down on the beach. A bit concerning because a lot of people walk along here, especially at night," he said.
