St Kilda Music Walking Tour

Walk on the wild side with some of the people who made St Kilda the legendary epicentre of Melbourne's internationally renowned music scene.

If you want a lecture full of dates and facts then you're on the wrong walk. If you want to get a feel for St Kilda when it rocks (without catching Hepatitis C) then you've come to the right place.
