St Kilda is the main beach playground closest to the Melbourne city centre, on weekends Melburnians flock here to walk, cycle and skate along the palm-lined foreshore or to lounge in an outdoor café or cocktail bar – and take in the panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay. Away from the foreshore, you’ll find much of St Kilda’s activity concentrated in Fitzroy and Acland streets. Fitzroy Street is renowned for its cool cafes, restaurants and bars, with tables spilling onto the footpath, and is one of Melbourne’s most attractive eating and drinking streets.
Nearby Acland Street is vibrant and bustling, with an eclectic mix of restaurants, wine bars and continental cake shops. There are a few icons to look out for in St Kilda. Luna Park, remains wildly popular, despite the onslaught of time and next to it, you'll find another landmark, a 20s-era white-washed of a building, the majestic Palais Theatre. Should you be in St Kilda on a Sunday, don't miss the Esplanade Arts and Crafts Market along the beach front. You can find plenty of quirky souvenirs here.
