Discover your neighbourhood's hidden gems

Over the next few months we'll be sharing stories with you on social media, featuring some of your favourite local shops, traders and businesses as well as some that are just waiting for you to discover. 

Ormond Road Village, Elwood

In March we took you on a little adventure through Elwood. We spoke to Jasmine from Hello Willow, Ludo from Combi and John from Cellarbrations Elwood about the hidden gems of Ormond Road Village. 

There’s so much to discover. Embrace the outdoors, explore the local shopping village and embrace the community spirit on your way to the beach.

Acland Street, St Kilda

In April we're exploring Acland Street to discover some more hidden gems.

"St Kilda is a destination,” says Nick from Europa Cake Shop on Acland Street.

“During COVID, the locals, they came and bought a cake from me one day, then went to the next cake shop the next day, etc, etc. They supported the street. It's been fantastic. It's a community. Have a look around, look at the diversity. I mean you've got iconic cake shops, there's four of us in the street. You've got a supermarket, you've got fashion, you've got restaurants of any type of food that you want, and you've got the beach across the road.”

The time is ripe to explore the diversity and hidden gems of Acland Street Village St Kilda.
