One of the best, if not the best sunset that I see in my life, a very worth while visit to St Kilda beach. It is convenient as it is not far from CBD. Lots of parking places, Long beach thus not crowded. Lots of...More

We stopped in here on what we thought would be a nice quiet Thursday night, until were met by riot police on horse back and gangs of youths running amuck. Didn’t feel like a safe neighbourhood to be in. Perhaps it’s safer during the day?

A must visit when you wanna just spend some time admiring the nature.. there are good eating joints, take a walk to the beach or explore the Sunday market (opens 10am to 4pm) its just 20 mins by tram (route 96) from southern cross.

Definitely nice to see the beach but the beach itself isn’t anything remarkable. Sand and water without waves and very few shady areas nearby although there is a large grassed area if you want the sun without the sand. Nice for a dip and a...More
