Melbourne in winter means chilly weather, weekend football, good food by the fire, and plenty of shopping. Rug up and open your mind in the moonlight at RISING – an outdoor arts festival featuring works from hundreds of international artists. Head into the CBD and grab a bite at Dom’s, SOCIETY or one of Spring Street’s pre-theatre restaurants, then take your seats at an evening showing of the latest smash hits.
If you’re in the mood for sports, Melbourne in winter is the place to be: there’s the Toyota AFL, soccer, rugby, netball and much more! After a game, reward yourself with some well-deserved retail therapy at Emporium, the Paris end of Collins Street, or the famous Block Arcade, then head to the NGV for their incredibleWinter Masterpieces exhibitions.
It might be winter, but Melbourne doesn’t hibernate. There’s always something to eat, see and do during the colder months. Just remember to pack an umbrella.
