There are dozens of ways to enjoy St Kilda, Melbourne's favourite beachside suburb. Make the most of the bayside location by strolling along the palm tree-fringed Esplanade, or give yourself a thrill riding the roller-coaster at Luna Park. Take it slow with a lazy brunch, or enjoy a big night out at one of the cool neighbourhood bars.
HOW TO GET THERE
The best way to get to St Kilda from Melbourne's city centre is by tram number 96, which takes about 20 minutes. Alternatively, take an inexpensive Uber or taxi ride (about AUD$20).
- Take a stroll along the seafront, or try cycling or inline skating
- Graze your way through the bars and restaurants along Fitzroy and Acland streets
- Browse for bargains at the Sunday markets
