The charming coastal resort of St Kilda is one of Melbourne’s best loved retreats for both locals and tourists. St Kilda’s wide stretches of wide, sandy beach are undoubtedly its most popular attraction. Whilst sun-worshippers can soak up the rays and cool off in the waves, more adventurous types can get involved in a host of watersports, from windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing and scuba diving. Tourists are also advised to wander along St Kilda’s historic pier for tranquil views across Port Phillip Bay, the iconic Pavilion building and the indigenous penguin colony which shelters in its breakwater.
A vast array of quaint gift shops, ice cream parlours and traditional fish and chip shops can be found along St Kilda’s Esplanade and the nearby Acland Street, the perfect destination in which to refuel after a long day at the beach. The area is also well-known for the iconic Luna Park fairground, one of Melbourne’s most popular children’s attractions. Established in 1912, this historic landmark is home to numerous rides, including Ferris wheels, dodgems, a traditional Carousel and the oldest working rollercoaster in the world, the Scenic Railway.
Within walking distance of the hotel is the breathtakingly beautiful Albert Park, located just north of St Kilda. The park spans 560 acres of pristine nature trails, pretty flowering gardens, numerous cricketing ovals, the Albert Park Public Golf Course, the Lakeside football stadium, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre and a vast ornamental lake. The greater Albert Park suburban area is also well-worth exploring for tourists. Characterised by its exotic palm tree lined boulevards, upmarket beachfronts and quaint Victorian terraced houses, Albert Park quintessentially represents Melbourne’s historic, seaside charm.
