Lovely area to walk with kids in this beautiful park land. On Sunday, there is a small craft market which is not too overcrowded. The area is safe for children, the toilets are clean

We like walking on our sightseeing and the beach at St Kilda is a nice spot to do it. The boardwalk is good and there are bike trails.

I do not believe you're allowed to drink on the beaches, but I don't think anyone minds too much. However, if you choose to drink on the beach (like we did), don't bring glass of any kind leave any litter on the beach, or... More
