Public Art in St Kilda

St Kilda is a southern suburb of Melbourne and the home of the St Kilda Football club (AFL). The suburb was named after Lady of St Kilda, a boat which had been moored at the main beach in 1841 by Charles La Trobe and the ship's master and early settler Lieutenant James Ross Lawrence. During the mid 1800s until the early 1900s St Kilda was home to many Melbourne elite but shortly there after it slipped into an area of ill repute, becoming a red light district and home to cheap rooms and board. Since the 1960's the suburb has become known for it bohemian culture and location of choice for artists and musicians. Many of Melbournes famous attractions can be found in St Kilda including Luna Park, Acland Street, St Kilda Beach and the Palais Theatre.
