A bathing box built in the early 1960s on Point King Beach at Portsea has hit the market.

The box, with a small deck and steps leading to its entrance, maintains its original wooden features, including a rear bench and shelving.

It has been offered publicly for the first time by Ilze Moran and Warwick Anderson from RT Edgar Portsea.
