In 2003 a fire destroyed a charming kiosk at the end of St Kilda Pier. Designed by James Charles Morell, the kiosk was accessed by strolling along the pier, and had been constructed 99 years earlier - in 1904.
The pier and its kiosk had long been the soul of St Kilda. Residents and tourists alike had enjoyed summer strolls out past the marina to the penguin habitat that lay just beyond the kiosk, or waited in line for fish and chips to eat as they watched fishermen battle to bring in their catch. After the fire there was some talk of leaving the kiosk un-reconstructed, but following enormous public support, the kiosk was reborn in 2006. Today you can enjoy a stroll down to the end of the pier, past the timeless fishermen, promenading sweethearts, and lounging teenagers, to get yourself some fish and chips or glass of rosé, and watch the boats in the marina or keep you eyes peeled for the sea life that still proliferates in the calm waters under the boardwalk.
