Our latest publications are the on-line editions of The History of St Kilda. These histories were commisioned by the City of St Kilda in 1930 and 1989. It has always been the aim of the Society to make these rare histories accessible and searchable through the internet.


It is the Society's intention to provide quality publications, in an accessible form for all to read.


These publications will relate to the history and heritage of St Kilda and Elwood from its early days.


Our first publication relates to the history of places of worship in the St Kilda area.


Our second publication relates to cinemas in St Kilda.


In October 2004 we published a book on the hotels in St Kilda and South Melbourne,


A Place of Sensuous Resort details the history, images and architecture of forty-eight of St Kilda's greatest buildings and is richly illustrated with over 260 historic photographs and architectural drawings. Author Richard Peterson, a lecturer at RMIT University, is an architect specialising in the conservation of historic buildings.


In 2006 we published a History of Elwood
