Nearby St Kilda attractions

The cosmopolitan bayside enclave of St Kilda beach is one of Melbourne's main tourist destinations and a popular haunt with the locals. It is situated on one of the most picturesque points of Port Phillip Bay, only 6 kilometres from Melbourne CBD and surrounded by safe, sandy beaches.

On weekends, Melbournians flock to St Kilda to walk, cycle and skate along the palm-lined beach or to sit in an outdoor café with a coffee and take in the panoramic views of Port Philip Bay.

Away from the shore, you’ll find St Kilda’s most popular things to do and attractions concentrated on Fitzroy and Acland Streets. Fitzroy Street is renowned for its cool cafés, restaurants and bars, with many featuring tables practically spilling onto the beach footpath. Acland Street is a bustling, vibrant avenue lined with eclectic restaurants, wine bars and continental cake shops. During the day, the streets are teeming with people drinking lattes; at night they’re buzzing with night owls on the hunt for fun.

Located directly on the beach, just a five-minute walk from Fitzroy and Acland Streets, Novotel Melbourne St Kilda is one of the best-located hotels for soaking up the attractions, activities and events to be found throughout St Kilda.
