Jewish Museum of Australia St Kilda Walk

As part of the St Kilda Festival 2017 and to complement the Jewish Museum of Australia permanent exhibition Calling Australia Home, the St Kilda Walk traces the history of Yiddish St Kilda, where Sunday trading began in Melbourne.

After Carlton, St Kilda became the home of many Jewish people in Melbourne and it was here many Jewish migrants gathered on a Sunday to shop, socialise and discuss politics.

Join us as part of St Kilda Festival and find out why Jewish families loved this beachside suburb now infused with a European sensibility. You'll visit Linden Art Gallery; St Kilda Town Hall; Christ’s Church Parish Hall; Luna Park; the Palais Theatre and Acland Street with its wonderful cake shops.

For your comfort, we suggest you bring an umbrella, sunscreen, water and wear comfortable walking shoes.
