St. Kilda even has a wonderful selection of vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurants and cafes and yes, it’s true; there is even a 24-hour McDonalds in town!

Hit the beach

St. Kilda beach itself might not quite rival the sandy beaches of New South Wales but its promenade and pier walk is simply fantastic. The promenade is dotted with great cosy bars if you fancy a drink while watching the tide come in. Make your way to the end of the pier at sunrise or sunset and you’ll also get to see some penguins – St. Kilda is home to thousands of little penguins who come ashore both as the sun rises and the sun sets.

Admire the art

St. Kilda is famous for its street art, which can be typically observed above the shop signs among the streets of the town. You’ll observe some quirky creations from our local street artists that are sure to make for an eye-catching post on your Instagram!

Attend the festival

The St. Kilda festival, usually held in February of each year, draws a huge crowd to the area. With various music stages and street performances, all of which are free admission, it’s a must attend festival.

Prepare to scream

A trip to St. Kilda isn’t complete without a ride on the Scenic Railway Rollercoaster, a ride that’s a lot scarier than its name might indicate. Luna Park is the area’s local amusement park, home to an awesome rollercoaster and lots of other amusements. Of course, it’s free to enter, so if you don’t fancy climbing aboard the rides, you can simply stroll around in amusement at everyone’s screams!
