Winter might be just around the corner but St Kilda’s social calendar is heating up. Here are our top 5 picks for the coming months.
1. Active April
Ward off that winter layer with free fitness classes every Wednesday at Acland Plaza and O’Donnell Gardens. Choose from old favourites like Zumba, boxing and HIIT, or go for something a little bit different like Capoeira or traditional belly dancing.
2. Home Grown
The country’s best musical theatre is coming to town for one night only as part of the behemoth that is the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Head to St Kilda’s National Theatre on April 23 for fresh entertainment at its best.
For everything new and exciting in the world of short film, head to the Palais Theatre and St Kilda Town Hall in the last two weeks of May. You can catch Australia’s top 100 short films, cutting-edge music videos, short pieces direct from Tokyo and the very best of Vimeo.
If you’re a fan of mindfulness, this is the festival for you. The day combines running, yoga and meditation into what must be the world’s best feel-good triathlon. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, Adina Apartment Hotel St Kilda is an easy 15 minute walk away.
You have the opportunity to eat good, do good and feel good this May with some of St Kilda’s best restaurants serving up delicious meals to help raise funds to feed those in need. There’s one-off cocktail parties, a gala dinner and speciality desserts, providing plenty of opportunity to contribute in a way that suits your tastebuds.
