#1 – St Kilda Pier
Traversed by vacationers and tiny penguins and adorned with a quaint little kiosk, St Kilda pier has been considered one of Melbourne’s go-to locations for a breezy stroll throughout COVID-19 lockdown. So deeply liked was the kiosk that, when it burned down in 2003, the state authorities volunteered to rebuild utilizing the 1904 plans and that’s the way it rose from the ashes. The opposite favorite exercise on the pier – a glimpse of the penguin parade – has been out of bounds since March as a result of it is not possible to socially distance the crowds that squeeze on the viewing platform. With restrictions easing, that might open once more quickly, although there is not any information but. In the meantime, you possibly can nonetheless benefit from the view and the stroll, now and not using a masks. Or, like this girl final week, a dainty little fossick throughout the rocks.
