St Kilda - where sleek city truly meets the splendid sea
Fashionable, fun, funky, fast, frisson. Stylish, sassy, soulful, city and slick. St Kilda is all this and more!
Step into the St Kilda Sea Baths! Sign up for Salsa Sundays! Restaurants, cafes, cosmopolitan cadence; premier beachfront with all the sashaying style of the city. There's flavor, fashion, fishing charters from the famous pier with its arching lamps and sublime views across the length and breadth of Port Phillip. Or simply pick up the Saturday broadsheet and head down to the sand for some summer sun baking.
Throw yourself into the teeming tempo of Acland Street and the iconic Luna Park with thrill seeker rides and fantasy fairy floss for the kids! Amble along the boardwalk and breakwater. Or, better still, bicycle! And keep your eyes peeled for the peppy little penguin colony nestled in its rocks. Take a proverbial left turn to Theatreworks, and for culture consider the Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts off the main drag.
In the evening, make your way over to the open-air cinema; and stroll along the promenade and pier again for an illuminating CBD lightshow. Magnificent Melbourne's reflections will shimmer and shimmy across the bay.
