Vintage vibes and old-school glam by the Bay

The now-boho neighborhood of Saint Kilda welcomes backpackers, families, and couples looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of central Melbourne. The heart of Saint Kilda is the Esplanade, where joggers spend their mornings, kids beg for another ride at Luna Park, and yachts and windsurfers play on the bay. This was once a glitzy, waterfront resort, and the colorful beach houses, upscale restaurants, and charming European-style cafes are a sweet reminder of the old days. Book a Saint Kilda vacation rental in the heart of it all, and enjoy vintage vibes on Australia's coast.

Vibrant beach life and buzzing bar scenes

This vibrant bayside neighborhood is in the middle of bringing back the good times. Now famous (again) for its beachlife and bar scene along buzzing Fitzroy Street, you can also take the kids on the rides at Luna Park, and snap a picture in front of the famous grinning entrance. The Esplanade is a must-stop, thanks to a weekly flea market and nightly party scene. Book a Saint Kilda vacation rental with a pool, or opt for the public option at Saint Kilda Sea Baths, a local institution.

A neighborhood of icons, right on Melbourne's front step

Saint Kilda is full of iconic spots, all well worth a visit. Definitely don't miss Luna Park, or at least a peek at its much-photographed entrance. Catch a live performance at the Esplanade Hotel or the Palais Theatre, which are each full of history, or pop into a local art gallery on Fitzroy. The Saint Kilda Botanic Gardens are the perfect mini-escape from the festive vibe on the Esplanade, while Saint Kilda Pier offers breathtaking views of Melbourne and the yachts that come to dock in Port Phillip Bay.

Choose between off-season deals or on-season vibes

Like all of Melbourne, Saint Kilda is best enjoyed during the shoulder seasons, when the temps are moderate but the crowds are smaller. Plan a trip between March and May or September and November, and nab a few local deals thanks to off-season prices. If crowds and costs aren't an issue, then you might prefer December through February, when the city dazzles in summer. It's hot and bustling, with lots to see and do on and around the beaches. Alternatively, Australia's winter season, June through August, sees a quiet and cold front with gray weather and minimal tourists.

Where the wildlife is just as vibrant as the nightlife

Saint Kilda's coastal positioning on Port Phillip Bay means plenty of wildlife on and around its sandy beaches. A variety of boat charters are available to take you out into the bay and beyond, for fishing excursions, whale watching, and seabird spotting. If you'd prefer to stay close to land, plan a sunset walk along the Saint Kilda pier. Here, you'll see the local penguin colony in its natural habitat, a favorite sight among locals and visitors alike. Wherever you book your Saint Kilda vacation rental, you're likely to see something wild.
