St Kilda Pier & Pavilion

On The Heritage Register But Not Currently Used

The St Kilda Pier is a long concrete pier that juts out from the beach at St Kilda and at the end is the Pavilion, a historic kiosk built in 1904. On 11 September 2003 the structure was destroyed in what was believed to be arson with  public support was rebuild the kiosk to the original 1903 plans, utilising some of the salvaged components, such as the cast iron roof, decorative cresting and the weather vane  The Pavilion is listed on the  Victorian Heritage Register  

When visited in mid winter's day the pavilion was closed and so too the modern cafe behind and the place was deserted. This is an icon that is not well utilised; such a shame.
