Most notorious for the smiling face of the Luna Park gates, immortalised in programmes like The Secret Life of Us, St Kilda is a one-of-a-kind bohemian suburb. It's had a massive facelift since its seamy '70s days (in which any band worth their salt had a squat here), although the lovely Palais Theatre still stands. Take a stroll down Acland Street past the Jewish cake shops and boutiques, then hook a turn into St Kilda Beach, where kite surfers vie with city types foraging for a great seafood meal.
