St Kilda Facts
  • Area: 2.24 km2
  • Population 29, 165 (St Kilda, St Kilda East, St Kilda West)

St Kilda is defined by two distinct retail strips, Fitzroy Street and Acland Street, with the vibrant Esplanade and the stunning St Kilda beach providing a natural link between the activity centres.

Fitzroy Street never sleeps, with the bright neon lights and constant hum of nightlife unfolding to lazy days of sidewalk cafes and parades of people. Home to an IGA supermarket and several boutique retail developments, Fitzroy Street is a hub of new-found chic alongside practical shopping and eateries.

Acland Street is the cosmopolitan centre of St Kilda, originally home to the many European immigrants who brought with them the tradition of mouth-watering cakes and pastries from their homelands. Rows upon rows of indulgent cakes line the windows of Acland Street’s famous cake shops, tempting those who stand three-deep outside the windows trying to decide which decadent treat to buy today.

St Kilda Esplanade Market is open every Sunday of the year from 10am - 5pm Located on the beautiful Upper Esplanade in St Kilda with sweeping views over the bay, it is the perfect place to view an exciting range of contemporary art and crafts from over 150 artisans.
