St Kilda is Melbourne’s iconic seaside suburb and is just a short tram ride (6km) away from the CBD. Featuring several attractions including the Victorian-styled fairground, Luna Park, St Kilda Sea Baths and the shopping and restaurant strips of Acland and Fitzroy Streets, St Kilda is a popular base for many travellers, particularly during the summer months.

Once a desirable suburb for Melbourne’s elite in Victorian and Edwardian times, St Kilda has a fascinating history and still features many of its original mansions and iconic attractions today.

Fitzroy Street runs from the southern side of Albert Park all the way down to St Kilda Beach. Packed with notable restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops, as well as budget and top end accommodation, it's a lively street that is great for people watching and hanging out in pavement cafés.

Acland Street runs parallel to the beach and offers more of the same attractions with the addition of the popular Sunday art-and-craft market (on the Esplanade) and some fabulously drool-worthy cake shops.

It is possible to walk along St Kilda beach for several kilometers in either direction. Head north towards the city and the suburbs of Albert Park and Port Melbourne or south to Elwood and the gentrified suburb of Brighton and beyond.

Practical Info

St Kilda is easily accessible by tram from outside Flinders or Southern Cross train stations.
