Entrance Of Melbourne's Luna Park in St Kilda

St Kilda is a remarkable place. It is situated on one of the most picturesque points of the Bay a short distance from the city, has safe sandy beaches, and yet for decades was shunned by Melbournites because it was the haunt of prostitutes and druggies. It wasn't always like that. Back in the first half of the century, St Kilda was one of the most fashionable suburbs of Melbourne with grand homes and grand people. Today, it is enjoying a resurgence.

The prostitutes and druggies have largely been pushed out by rapidly rising real estate prices and St KIlda is fast returning to its heydays. This bayside suburb is now one of the main tourist destinations and is renowned for its picturesque bayside setting, close proximity to the city, beaches, music venues, restaurants and cafe lifestyle.

One of the the main historic features of the park is the iconic "Mr Moon" gateway.
