Experience the fun of rickshaw travel in the heart of St Kilda! St. Kilda Rickshaws offer a safe and environmentally friendly alternative mode of transportation in and around St. Kilda.
Founder Michael Ferguson travelled from USA, to Melbourne, two years ago. After travelling around this beautiful country, Michael chose to make St Kilda his home, and entered this new and exciting business venture. Starting with a single custom made rickshaw, St Kilda Rickshaws has quickly grown to now have 5 rickshaws, driven by travelling backpackers from around the world.
Currently operating in St Kilda, with plans to expand to the city and other suburbs, St Kilda Rickshaws runs as a taxi service for $10 per ride, and offers three tour options which include a 15 minute tour along St Kilda Esplanade for $30; a 30 minute tour starting near Luna Park and ending at the Spirit of Tasmania, for $50; and a 1 hour tour which extends the tour along the Esplanade to some of St Kilda's famous roads, for $90.
The jovial and social riders are well versed on local culture and events, and are happy to provide you with a historical overview of the tour sites as well as travelling tips for your onward journey.
