Where to stay in St Kilda

Exploring St Kilda

Once Melbourne’s infamous suburban red light district, the picturesque bayside suburb of St. Kilda is now one of the city’s coolest entertainment destinations, offering sandy beaches, restaurants, music venues, and a café lifestyle. Edwardian architecture dating from the suburb’s early days as a refuge for the wealthy, one of Melbourne’s dedicated Food Precincts, glorious views over the bay, the historic Luna Park fun fair, the Palais Theatre, and the roses in the St Kilda Botanic Gardens are all reasons to head for this premier tourist destination.

Access to St Kilda from Melbourne’s downtown district is via the cultural melting pot of Fitzroy Street and St Kilda Road, and the best times to be here weekends. Sundays see the fabulous art and craft street market, crammed with paintings, sculptures, glass, leatherworks, and more, all created by local artists and craft workers. A wander to the end of the pier gives great views of Melbourne’s cityscape, Port Philip Bay, and the local penguin colony, and line fishing off the pier is a favourite occupation.

Sightseeing in St Kilda

- Luna Park

This century-old fun fair’s entrance, shaped as a huge, laughing face, is seen on postcards all over Melbourne, and is a famous St Kilda landmark. Inside, you’ll find a National Trust-listed roller coaster, the heritage Carousel and Ghost Train, and other traditional rides, as well as their modern space-age counterparts. Nostalgia rules here, in spite of rides such as the Holodeck.

- Jewish Museum of Australia

The fascinating 200-year timeline of the Jewish contribution to Australia is displayed here, along with the entire history of Judaism over four millennia. There’s also a section examining the rituals and beliefs binding worldwide Jewish diaspora communities together for centuries.
