With its close proximity to Acland Street, it's no wonder St Kilda has one of the most popular beaches in Melbourne. The shore is home to all kinds of sport, whether you're a beach cricket, volleyball or frisbee enthusiast and the water is safe for swimming and watersports. Take a walk down to St Kilda pier and breakwater and you might just spot one of the local Fairy Penguins (they're most active at dusk). The pier is also a popular fishing hole.
Head down the other end of the beach and you'll eventually come to the ever-smiling face of Luna Park. A favourite with big and little kids, the park is open weekends, every day during Victorian school holidays and for most public holidays (excluding Christmas). Continue on to Acland Street for a bite to eat. You've got a large number of options for a full meal or café lunch, but be sure to leave room for cake; Acland Street is well known for its sweet treats.
