It’s been a recreational center for locals and tourists for centuries. Panoramic view of port Philip bay and sky line is something you shouldn’t miss, if you love visualizing and experiencing the nature. Present pier is reconstructed after it was burnt down in 2003 in a fire tragedy.

Night life in St. Kilda is just fun, I didn’t do much in the night in my last visit, but during my first visit to St.Kilda in way back 2014, I happen to go out with two German girls (Travellers) whom I met and shared accommodation for few days.
