About this walk

St. Kilda is home to Melbourne’s largest educational tool, the Melbourne Solar System Trail.
The model of our solar system follows St. Kilda’s iconic Esplanade. Each metre you walk represents 1,000,000 kms in space.
Start near the white lighthouse in St. Kilda’s Marina Reserve at the Sun sculpture. All planets are accurately spaced and scaled to give you insight into the magnitude  of our solar system.
Visit the first five planets in under 1km but you’ll find Neptune 4.5km away – Pluto almost six km away on Sandridge Beach, past Princes Pier.

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants along the way.
