Welcome to my country, the land of the great bay of the Boon Wurrung people, our beautiful home. On behalf of the Boon Wurrung, a clan of the greater Kulin nations, I welcome you to our land. Euro Yuroke - more commonly known as St Kilda - and its surrounds are special places which continue to carry forward the spirit of our tradition. This land will always be protected by the creator, Bunjil, who travels as an eagle, and by Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow. As the spirit of my ancestors lives, let the wisdom and the spirit of generosity which Bunjil taught us influence the opportunities that may arise at this meeting place.

City of Port Philip
The City of Port Phillip is proud to present the 37th St Kilda Festival – Australia’s largest free music festival. St Kilda’s spectacular foreshore is the perfect setting for this summer celebration of top Australian live music.
There really is something for everyone at this major event. Fantastic food, beverages and shopping can be enjoyed at the Festival and St Kilda’s many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. Children’s entertainment, buskers and carnival rides also make for a great family day. More than 400,000 visitors of all ages attend every year, often returning between Festivals to enjoy St Kilda’s unique attractions. We look forward to you joining us this year.
