Let the Crackerjack Doves Make You Laugh

|   A Flirty St. Kilda Beach

What a perfect Friday afternoon. The sun shone brightly , but not too blazing. We decided to conduct a sort of  little jaunt right after my daughter finishing her lesson at school. And our option went to St. Kilda (St. Kilda Beach and Luna Park)  – as we opted randomly from many alternatives, as usual –  on that day. Simply because it’s distance is considerably not too far from our house and it’s pretty eazy to reach it with many kind of transportation preferences. For you who use Tram as primary mode,  –especially the newbie resident in Melbourne –  I suggest you to install Google Map and myTRAM application to your smartphone as it’ll take time until you get yourself  fluent with the tram routes in this city.

No worries,… It’s not difficult to reach St. Kilda Beach. You can take Route number 96 (East Brunswick to St. Kilda) – of course a couple of route-shift is necessary if you live in other area -. I transfered from route-55 to route 96 at Melbourne CBD intersection. For more routes information, feel free to track it via myTRAM, or ask for local resident.

When we arrived, there were quite cool breezy wind rippled our body, so you won’t find a lot of  white pointers  (: topless female sunbathers) here, especially at the afternoon. A creamy-white sand beach, calm tide, lovely docking area, immaculate wooden jogging track  were in place to give warm welcome to visitors, as if they were flirty receptionist of an office called nature. Everybody indulged themselves with many activities, such as practicing beach- volley ball, photographing, jogging, walking, sailing, or simply enjoying smoco with cobber (: friends). Bring your guitar, cello, or black cappuccino to complete the sunset. And most important, don’t forget to bring your own tucker (:food). And hey!… there were a plentiful amount of cute dodgy doves messing around the beach. The crowd of the doves were all crackerjack that will make you laugh!!! Just give them your tucker a bite or two, then KBOOOM! They’ll swoope it speedy, like hell flash.

Still near the beach, there is the oldest amusement park in Australia called Luna Park, of which only two are still operating in Australia (Sydney and Melbourne-Victoria). The main historic features of the park to remain include the iconic “Mr Moon Face” entry and flanking towers (1912), the Scenic Railway (1912) which is the oldest continuously operating roller coaster in the world – made of wood! -, the carousel (1913), and the Ghost Train (1934) – it was not scary after all-. The entrance is free of charge. But if you want to take a ride, you’ll need to buy unlimited ride ticket cost AUS $46-47 (13 yrs+), $36-37 (children 4-12 yrs), $16 (children under 3 yrs.), or single ride ticket cost $5 (under 3 yrs), $9 (4-12 yrs) , and $11 (13 yrs+) per ride. It’s not as extravaganza as Disneyland, Universal Studio, Trans Studio-Bandung, or even Dunia Fantasi-Ancol, but Luna Park as a whole is listed by the Victorian Heritage Register.
