St Kilda Pier is such a great Melbourne attraction and makes for a great afternoon/ early evening stroll.

Watch the sun go down looking out over the water from the end of St Kilda Pier, the view is sensational and the sunset like seeing the penguins is absolutely free, how good is that? And to to top off the whole experience wait for the cute penguins that call St Kilda home to emerge from the rocks as the sun goes down.

This colony of penguins have called St Kilda home for a long time and are also the smallest type of penguins in existense they are the fairy penguin breed.

This little adventure is perfect for a romantic time with a loved one or makes a great family outting with the kids.

This is a popular activity especially on a Friday night so I suggest getting there well before the sunsets so you can get a good spot to sit on the rocks.
