In St Kilda, we do winter well. Embrace the crisp days and chilly nights with this list of indoor and outdoor activities keeping residents and visitors in our corner of Melbourne socially satisfied all season long. Life doesn’t stop for the weather.
1. St Kilda Winter Wine & Cider Walk
Saturday 27 July 2019
On Saturday 27 July, The St Kilda Winter Wine & Cider Walk will bring a handpicked selection of wineries and boutique cider houses to some of St Kilda’s best-loved locations, allowing you to sample drops from world-renowned wine regions such as Italy, South Australia, Regional Victoria and WA, without leaving 3182.
Our sister property Mitchelton will host a pop-up cellar door in Prince Dining Room, tasting a showcase of their PREECE Wine collection. Drop in for a sip and a snack.
Explore our ‘hood, making your way down Fitzroy Street, where you’ll be dazzled and delighted by roving street performers between tastings. Rickshaws will also be available for those with tired legs.
2. Skating At Festival
Open until Sunday 14 July 2019
Centred around a world-class ice skating rink, Skating At is a festival of food, drinks and entertainment all conveniently located in the heart of the city. This winter they have set up shop in St Kilda on the corner of Acland and Barkley Streets.
This family-friendly event is ideal for people of all ages and skill levels who want to have SNOW much fun over the winter!
3. Jordan Bailey Single Launch at Prince Bandroom
Saturday 8 July 2019
Jordan Bailey is teaming up with his 4 piece rock band for a night of cheek, laughs & heartbreak to release his new single ‘Say What You Want’, an upbeat rap song that sees love through a distorted lens.
Think the intensity of The Goo Goo Dolls with the sensitivity of Ed Sheeran. A classically trained saxophonist, Jordan often likes to indulge in some Dire Straits inspired melodies on stage. Strap in, this will be fun.
4. The Astor Theatre
Serving up feature films since 1936 The Astor Theatre is a St Kilda must visit. Built in the same era as The Prince Hotel you will see many similarities in the art deco architecture. Never fear, just like us, The Astor has received much-needed upgrades over the years, making sure it has the best AV systems in place for keen moviegoers to enjoy their chosen flicks with the most up to the minute technology. Pop(corn) in for a taste of the old world, with all the new age advantages.
5. Local Footy at Peanut Farm Reserve
It’s back-to-roots in the best way possible. Get down and cement yourself as a local at one of Melbourne’s most iconic grass-roots footy grounds, Peanut Farm Reserve. Framed by the signature palm trees of St Kilda with a backdrop of Luna Park behind the goals, rug up, hit the BBQ and cheer to your heart’s content as the girls and boys of the home and away sides put on a show. Go Sharks, Go Saints!
