This famous seaside suburb is home to a sweeping esplanade and countless icons of Melbourne like Luna Park, Palais Theatre, and the St Kilda Baths. A diverse group of people live here, but the suburb truly belongs to young professionals, singles, and child-free couples searching for an easy-going cosmopolitan lifestyle on the beach.
During the summertime, St Kilda is swarmed with tourists from all around the world who enjoy the various shops, cafes, restaurants, live entertainment venues, markets and festivals. During the off season, St Kilda is still home to a diverse local community, many of whom are from Italy, Japan, China, India, France, Ireland, Vietnam, Thailand, Russia, and Egypt.
Although St Kilda’s population is mostly single and childless, it is also a good place to raise a family. There are a variety of parks and good schools for parents to choose from. The housing market is bountiful, comprised of a variety of homes and apartment styles from multi-million dollar Victorian/Edwardian mansions to art deco and contemporary apartments.
