Welcome, skip to the content.

Feel Melbourne's beating pulse as you veer off and onto St Kilda Road, the city's tree-lined main artery and gateway to lush parks and well-known landmarks.

Manmade art and natural beauty

Jump off the tram and get arty at the beguiling National Gallery of Victoria (international collection) or the Arts Centre. Browse the Arts Centre Market, held on Sundays along the footpaths to the river.

Spend the afternoon exploring the Domain Parklands that line St Kilda Road. Bring a picnic lunch or just while away the day on Alexandra and Queen Victoria gardens' manicured lawns surrounded by fountains, statues and even a colourful floral clock. 

Roam the seemingly never-ending Royal Botanic Gardens, home to thousands of plant species and native wildlife. The gardens feature lakes, observatories, a Children's Garden, a rainforest walk, themed gardens and lawns. Spend a summer evening at a theatre performance or catch a classic flick under the stars. Join the morning joggers on 'the tan', a legendary running track encircling the gardens.

Down by the river

Ditch the dim laneways and subterranean dens for glorious fresh air and riverside vistas. Wander past boat sheds and palm trees and views of the city skyline. Head to the Kings Domain for a show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, a shell-shaped outdoor performance venue with a fine pedigree.

Lest we forget

On the edge of the Botanic Gardens in Kings Domain sits the striking Shrine of Remembrance, a war memorial to the fallen soldiers of Victoria. Climb to the balcony at the top for wonderful views of the city. The historic Victoria Barracks are also located along St Kilda Road.

Moomba magic

Make sure you're around St Kilda Road each March for the madness and mayhem of the free family festival, Moomba.
