St Kilda is a remarkable place. It is situated on one of the most picturesque points of the Bay a short distance from the city, has safe sandy beaches, and yet for decades was shunned by Melbournites because it was the haunt of prostitutes and druggies.
It wasn't always like that. Back in the first half of the century, St Kilda was one of the most fashionable suburbs of Melbourne with grand homes and grand people.
Places to visit in St Kilda include:
Acland Street: one of Melbourne's Food Precincts and is also a long-time favourite of Melbournians and tourists alike because of its famous cakes shops. It is now the number one stop for backpackers because of the busy cafes and close proximity to St Kilda's beaches.
Upper Esplanade: has fantastic views of the Bay with the newly restored and refurbished St Kilda Baths and Royal Yacht Squadron in the foreground. The landmark Esplanade Hotel is a venue for music gigs. On Sundays, a craft market is held on the Upper Esplanade.
Lower Esplanade: directly opposite the beach and beachside restaurants is known for a number of landmarks including Luna Park fun fair, Palais Theatre (now a popular concert venue) and the St Kilda Baths (for years the venue for shady nightclubs but is now restored to its former glory).
Luna Park: historic fun fair that is the best known St Kilda landmark. The laughing face facade and roller coaster have both been classified by the National Trust.
St Kilda Botanic Gardens: situated in Blessington Street (off Ackland Street), also known as Blessington Gardens, are a delightful sanctuary that is one of St Kilda's best kept secrets. Its rose gardens are spectacular and among the best in Melbourne.
Balaclava is what St Kilda used to be before it was gentrified. You might walk past a pissed, smelly, homeless man one minute, and then gays or lesbians holding hands the next, followed by students eating sushi, arty types sipping on a latte, parents with kids, and Hassidic Jewish families shopping. This suburb's demographics are changing but there is still plenty of colour here to keep the gentrified away.
The main shopping strip is on Carlisle Street and here you will find more variety stores ($2 shops) per square metre than just about anywhere else. There are some interesting examples of public art, and a good selection of cafes. Saturday mornings are particularly busy when locals venture to Carlisle St to have breakfast and lunch. If you like diversity and are inspired by it, then scoot on down and join the street party.
Tram Line 67 directly across the Road running up Chapel Street & connecting with City Lines. Tram Line 4 running down Carlisle Street to St Kilda Beach & Luna Park
