About St Kilda Suburb

St Kilda is both a popular suburb located south of Melbourne's CBD and a superb beach. The beach is considered to be the best beach in Melbourne.

The suburb was a favourite place to live for the wealthy during the mid nineteenth to early twentieth century. Consequently, there are some great examples of Victorian and Edwardian buildings and homes. Around the turn of the 20th century, St Kilda become Australia's version of Coney Island. After World War 2, it became a red-light district and from the 1960s the area attracted many artists, musicians, and alternative cultures which exist to this day. However, real estate in the area is expensive partly because of the many well constructed older homes and mansions as well as the beach and good facilities including shops and restaurants. This has led St Kilda to return to itsmore affluent roots.

Landmarks and attractions of this suburb include:
