St Kilda Pavilion

St Kilda Pavilion

The St Kilda Pavilion is an historic kiosk located at the end of St Kilda Pier, in St Kilda, Victoria, Australia. The kiosk was built in 1904 and originally known as "Parer's Pavilion". In the 1930s it was renamed "Kirby's Kiosk".

In September 2003 the structure was destroyed in an arson attack.

After massive public support to rebuild the kiosk and the support of premier Steve Bracks, it was reconstructed to the original 1903 plans, utilising some of the salvaged components, such as the cast iron roof, decorative cresting and weather vane. An additional structure, expanding the capacity was erected directly behind the kiosk and is obscured by the pavilion when viewed from the pier.

The Pavilion is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.

The kiosk re-opened in March 2006. The site is owned by Parks Victoria and is leased to Peter Tzambazis.
