When we talk about nudism (also known as naturism), we're not just talking about nude beaches and festivals. We've investigated the various activities that you can enjoy in your birthday suit in Melbourne, from bath houses to bowling. And yes, nude beaches and festivals, too. 

When it's time to return to the land of the clothed, check out our guides to Melbourne's best shopping and alternative fashion.

Nudist beaches and clubs in Melbourne

Jajarawong Naturist Retreat

Want to stay naked for more than a couple of hours? Maybe for a couple of days even? At Jajarawong Naturist Retreat you can stay in an electricity free cabin or camp and really get back to nature. Gas lights and heaters will keep your naked body warm along with the sauna, hot tub and the cocktail and lounge bar. Partake in some of the activities on offer such as bushwalking, fishing and feeding the ducks. Other facilities include swimming pool, BBQs, restaurant and masseuse.

Japanese Bathhouse

Clean away all your winter cobwebs the way the Japanese do – communally and stark naked. This traditional Japanese bath house requires you to take off your shoes at the door and then remove all clothes before you hop into the hot, communal bath (one for each gender) and relax. Afterwards you can sip on sake in the relaxation room or have a shiatsu treatment.

Sunnyside North Beach

Go natural baby and have some fun in the sun sans bathers. These beaches are generally harder to find than most but Sunnyside North tends to be a friendly and popular one to try. Just make sure you’ve gone north enough so that you don’t get weird looks when you start stripping off. A piece of advice: apply sunscreen EVERYWHERE.
