Prepare to play in St Kilda, where you can kick up your heels by the seashore, along with live music or on the whirligigs at Luna Park.

Melbourne's favourite beachside suburb

Join locals who walk, cycle and skate under the palms on the foreshore or sail, windsurf or kitesurf on the bay.

Keep an eye out for little penguins at the St Kilda Breakwater and visit the Sunday St Kilda Esplanade Arts and Craft Market. Return to the neighbourhood's genteel resort days with a dip in the heated seawater spas and pools at the historic St Kilda Sea Baths.

Enjoy fine dining at Donovans, Stokehouse and Circa, Asian flavours at Uncle and tasty Mexican at Radio Mexico. Catch live music at the Palais Theatre and the Prince Bandroom, and get a thrill on a ride at the iconic Luna Park.

Fitzroy, Acland and Carlisle street days

Choose the street to suit the mood. Fitzroy and Acland streets have cool cafes, restaurants and bars, fashion boutiques and independent music and book stores.

Hear the languages of many European cultures on Carlisle Street. Grab a bagel at Glick's Cakes and Bagels, a coffee at Wall Two 80, or lunch at The Local. Share the Jewish experience at the Jewish Museum of Australia.

St Kilda Festival

Get carried along with the crowds at February's St Kilda Festival. A week of music and comedy performances culminate in Festival Sunday, which sees the streets closed to carry on the suburb's historic penchant for revelry.
