Summer in Melbourne and its eclectic neighbourhoods is packed with unmissable fun. Spend your days meandering through urban gardens, relaxing along the foreshore in St Kilda or exploring the colourful beach boxes in Brighton. Hire a boat and cruise along the Yarra River, or get a workout in and hit the river in a kayak.
Escape the heat in one of the city's many galleries or with a matinee of the latest musical to take the city by storm, or shop summer markets and festive sales in boutique stores and major shopping precincts.
As the sun dips below the horizon and sets the sky ablaze with fiery colours, take your seat in a pumping rooftop or floating river bar with a refreshing beer or spritz in hand. The fun doesn't end there, dine in award-winning restaurants, stroll through the city and jump from bar to bar or hit up the clubs and dance 'til dawn. Melbourne transforms into the city that never sleeps in the summertime.
