Get to Port Melbourne early and enjoy the beach and views of the Spirit of Tasmania ferry at her dock before hiring your blue bike and riding along the Bay Trail. This segregated pedestrian and cycle path runs along the foreshore to St Kilda Pier and on to other famous Bayside suburbs such as Elwood and Brighton.
Cycle past dog walkers, runners and kite surfers until you get to the St Kilda Life Saving Club. Here, cross Jacka Boulevard on to Cavell Street and continue the short way to the bike docking station at Luna Park.
To see the St Kilda penguins, walk back along the Bay Trail to St Kilda Pier and Breakwater. The Little Penguins of St Kilda live in the pile of rocks that make up St Kilda Breakwater – and are one of the world’s only urban penguin colonies. Be careful to stay well back from the penguins and don’t dazzle them with camera flashes or torches.
