On a more practical note Kerford Rd is close to the city, has good amentities, a café and shade, which is invaluable on a hot day in formal attire. Sea, beach, coffee, and rustic bridge timbers creating enticing patterns under the boat ramp, which also allows shade, and, so so so importantly, Kerford Road Pier is blessed with a unique amenity in piers near the CBD– it has car parking right on the pier!

Property prices boomed in the 1870’s, and Beaconsfield Parade was made from filled in foreshore in 1879, and the area developed as at beach resort.

Kerford Road Pier was built in 2 stages to a Public works design, the first in 1887, 360 ft, then another 300 feet in 1889. In 1890 the Beaconsfield Parade promenade and and then the Middle Park baths opened, boosting Kerford Road Pier’s popularity. Kerford Road Pier is protected by the National Trust, it retains very many of its original Victorian features; at Serendipity Photography we appreciate being part of Melbourne’s living heritage, in just the same way that today’s couples can walk with their great great grandparents under Melbourne’s fortunate skies.
