St Kilda beach and St Kilda is, without a doubt, the most popular of Melbourne’s beaches as it sits just 6ks from the city center.
The public path stretches all the way along and is a great excuse to get on your bike or get jogging! There are endless beachy activities to do too including windsurfing or sailing.
Make it out at sunset and you will catch the fairy penguins that hang about at the St Kilda breakwater. As night sets in, St Kilda beach is a becomes an extension of
Melbourne’s playground. The beach hugs St Kilda which is buzzing with night, has night markets and festivals on in the summer months and revellers often overspill on to the beach where the party continues when everything else closes.
St Kilda Melbourne
Melbourne’s Luna Park is a historic amusement park located on the foreshore of Port Phillip Bay in St Kilda.
It opened on 13th December 1912 and has been operating almost continuously ever since as a great family fun-filled outing.
In the years before World War I the park was a great success with attractions such as the great Scenic Railway which is the oldest continuously-operating roller coaster in the world.
1923 saw the park face an extensive overhaul with added new and improved attractions, such as the Big Dipper roller coaster, a water chute, a Noah’s Ark and a 4-row carousel.
The park remained popular throughout the 1950s, 1960s and into the late 1970s, when some of the earlier attractions began to be replaced by modern mechanical rides.
The “Mr. Moon” entry with flanking towers has changed faces as the years have passed with different designs.
Mr. Moon’s huge mouth which visitors enter and exit Luna park is an iconic image of Melbourne, often seen in an advertisement for the city.
