No matter what the season it is worth going to visit the pier and beach down at St. Kilda. If you want to see the penguins you should go closer to sunset, and it is worth it because the water is a beautiful color at that time of day.

A beautiful beach with a great pier and as you reach the ebd of the pier there is a great cafe who make fantastic milk shakes 😀 but take a stroll along the beach as it is a treat. Cafes line the edge as does the iconic luna park and its attractions with in.

take a tram down from Flinders' Street and reach St.Kilda. even if you don't get to watch the penguin parade in Phillip Island, don't fret because you can watch it for free here. ideal time to go there would be just before sunset. watch the sun go down and see the city skyline getting lit up. post sunset look for...

Spent the day at St Kilda Beach, lovely beach and surrounding walks. The town is a little run down but it looks like renovations are underway. Lovely Sunday market along the promenade.

The beach most visitors to Melbourne want to visit & only a short tram ride from the city. Also an area Melbourne residents visit when it's sunny. Can be heaving on a hot summers day & avoid at Christmas & New Year as well as when the various festivals are on if you don't like huge crowds. As a local... More

A must to take a photo. We went there for F&B. There was a nearby street that had a lot of option of delicious food. And also a theme park. We used the tram and also went touring from the city. It was a fun ride.

Am sure it would have been heaps better on a nice sunny day and without all the road/tram works (lots of jackhammering)

Beautiful on a nice day! Stunning outlook and a couple of great places to stop for lunch or Breakie along the waterfront. Also sea baths if you fancy a swim indoors with salt water. Had a Cha,Payne Breakie at the beachcomber outside( covered) and then returned the following day for coffees and bagels next door.

Whilst staying in Melbourne with family for a few days , we went to a restaurant at St. Kilda beach for breakfast .. It was lovely sitting outside and looking out at the beach .. After breakfast we went for a stroll along the sand ...very clean and well maintained ..

I really love this beach! Sure it doesn't look much compared to a lot of other beaches in Australia, but it's just something special about it. I stayed in St. Kilda for a few months and went here almost every day. It's beautiful in sunshine when it's filled with people and really impressive on stormy days when the massive waves... More
