    Fantastic colours,I always have in mind to visit this place…..perhaps one day

  • Thanks Hans, as you can see a lot of them have had a new coat of paint, they sell for an absolute fortune.

    A Planning Scheme Heritage Overlay on the boxes by the Bayside City Council restricts alterations, and all retain their Victorian era architecture, such as timber frames, weatherboard sidings, and corrugated iron roofs, without amenities such electricity or running water.
    The bathing boxes may only be purchased by residents paying local council rates, and as of 2008 were selling for prices in the range of AU$200,000, with annual council rates of around AU$500, despite their lack of amenities.
    In 2009 plans were announced to build at least six new bathing boxes in an effort by the council to raise funds in excess of AU$1 million in light of the global financial crisis.

    Cheers,
    Rock

    Thanks for the info Ronald,that sounds about right regarding councils raising money perhaps for the expensive overseas trips they make each year.

  • Exactly Hans, they take with both hands !!!!
