St Kilda is defined by two distinct retail strips, Fitzroy Street and Acland Street Village. The Esplanade and St Kilda Beach provide a natural link between the two precincts.

Renowned for live music, arts and culture and outdoor activities, plus home to many annual festivals, including St Kilda Festival, St Kilda Film Festival and the Pride March, St Kilda provides the perfect urban playground.

Things to see and do

Discover Acland Street's hidden gems

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.
