    If you're going to St Kilda Pier for the colony of fairy penguins, be warned - the area has been cordoned off and you can't see the little 'uns. Go to Philip Island instead if you must tick that box.  more »

    A stroll along the pier can on occasion yield some little penguins poking out of the rocks. I was lucky enough to see several, along with the jellyfish in the water. The whole area is nice for an afte...  more »

    I've been 4 times to visit the penguins during my stay and they are amazing but it is better if you go to arrive for 6:30-7pm as there's significantly less people so most of the penguins will actually...  more »

  • Good place to see penguines after dark all year round. The best part is its free. No flash allowed while taking photos.
  • An iconic place to visit in Melbourne. Who says you have to go to Phillip Island to see penguins?! Such a pretty spot too, especially at night, with lovely views of the city skyline.
  • It's lovely here on a hot summer evening, but it's the penguins we really go there for. And please please please don't touch the penguins or use flash photography, or you may scare these little guys away and never see them again.
  • A very nice spot on the beach of St. Kilda. Go there and have a drink (and maybe a meal) with your friends and vist the 'Breakwater' after sunset to see the little penguins which inhabit the area. (Do that in the summer months to see more penguins)
  • Excellent place to spend your weekend! Good market place and food options available!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
