Summer fun at the foreshore

Published 14 December 2021
The sun is shining and our foreshore restaurants are back up and running.

You can sit on the beach and enjoy a drink from Beachcomber or visit the expanded Stokehouse when it opens in Rotary Park towards the end of the year.

The foreshore is the perfect place to catch up with friends, hang out with family or take that special someone. Sit on the beach and watch the sunset with fish and chips from Pontoon or take the kids down to the Skate Park at Marina Reserve and grab an ice cream along the way.

And until 27 March 2022, there’s another big reason to visit St Kilda Beach.

Australia’s largest portable Ferris wheel is delighting residents and visitors in Catani Gardens, right at the mouth of Fitzroy Street.

The Skyline Ferris Wheel is an awe-inspiring structure with 24 clear gondolas providing breathtaking views of St Kilda, Melbourne City, Port Phillip Bay and the You Yangs.

Enjoy Dine and Ride packages at a range of nearby St Kilda cafes, bars and restaurants and have a swim or relax on the sand before or after your ride.

The Skyline Ferris Wheel was designed and built in Holland with the latest in safety, engineering and technology. It features 9000 LED lights, which provide a spectacular light show in the evenings.

The Ferris Wheel is open every day, except Christmas Day, from 10 am - 9.30 pm.

Locals will save more than 30 per cent off ticket prices when they show proof of address at the ticket box:

Adult - $8, normally $12

Seniors - $7, normally $10

Gondola - $28, normally $40
