Beach living at its best

Between Seacliff and Glenelg lies the coastal suburb of Brighton. The suburb was established after the opening of the Brighton Post Office in 1849, and Brighton Beach has become a favourite hangout for Adelaidean surfers and beach bums, most probably due to being rated as Least Hazardous by Surf Lifesaving and its reputation for good surfing conditions.

Each year, Brighton Beach hosts the Brighton Jetty Classic, an Open Water Swim consisting of the 1500 metre Brighton Jetty Classic Swim and the 400 metre Jetty Swim. The course winds around the Brighton Jetty. The jetty was rebuilt after winter storms damaged the original jetty, which was built in 1886. An annual seaside sculpture installation coincides with the Brighton Jetty Classic, drawing large crowds to the area.

The suburb of Brighton is all about family, and a range of restaurants, cafes and a hotel can be found along the ever-popular Esplanade.

Whyte was awarded a Grand Diploma by the Royal Life Saving Society in 1919, after saving a swimmer from drowning.
