St Kilda Pier

Perch yourself on the weathered footbridge, dangle your bare feet into Port Phillip Bay, cast out as the sun sets – and stick around to catch the post-dusk penguin parade.

Save yourself the two-hour drive to Phillip Island – and the $22. $10 admission price. You can see Little Penguins right at St Kilda’s breakwater as twilight falls and the colony of around 100 teeny guys heads home. Volunteers from Earthcare St Kilda may be on hand to answer questions, but even if they’re not, do the right thing and turn off your camera’s flash.
