Welcome to Buckets and Spades


About Us


Buckets and Spades for Kids (Pty Ltd) was established in its current Port Melbourne location (Shop 8 / 191 Bay Street, Port Melbourne, 3207 VIC Australia) in 1996. Port Melbourne is the nearest bayside suburb to the central Melbourne city area. Today, Port Melbourne is one of the most sought-after parts of Melbourne in which to live, both because of its closeness to the city and also because of its sheltered bay beaches. It is one of Melbourne's most fashionable bayside suburbs.

Buckets and Spades for kids opened its second shop at it's previous Brighton location (34 Carpenter Street Brighton) on the corner of the prestigious Church Street in 2001. In 2011, as a result of the need for more space in conjunction with an overdue makeover, the shop relocated to its newly fitted out premises across the road at 19A Carpenter Street Brighton, VIC 3186 Australia. Brighton is arguably one of Melbourne's most 'liveable' suburbs. It is situated in a stunning, seaside location, with clean beaches, wide streets and beautiful public gardens. Like most inner bayside suburbs, the area is big on cafes and restaurants.
