Acland street

Most tourists strolled along this St Kilda street’s southern end after a Luna Park visit. Crowds dawdled by shop fronts, peered into restaurants or entered the many cake shops that enticed customers with their calorie-laden goods.

I preferred the street’s northern quiet end where stately houses stood amongst apartments, trees shaded the walkway and few cars ventured along this section. Tucked between two busy roads, this street also had an art gallery.
