Start your day with brunch at Mabu Mabu's Big Esso in Federation Square. Help yourself to big and small sized share plates of seasonal produce, which incorporate incredible native flavours.
Wander across Princes Bridge to the NGV to see Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse, an exhibition exploring the progressive work of the late British fashion designer. But if sport's more your game, check out the Australian Sports Museum at the MCG, celebrating sporting greats and our most popular games.
Mad for cricket? The Boxing Day Test takes place at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds from the 26 to 30 December.
Perhaps pack a picnic, hop in a GoBoat and cruise down the Yarra to see Melbourne riverside on a balmy summer afternoon.
Or head to Melbourne's sports precinct to explore AO Beach House. Watch the tennis action play out on the big screen from your own deckchair, or show off your skills on the sandy beach tennis court.
See in sunset with a summery cocktail and seafood fare at the AO, or grab a seat at a match. Alternatively, top off the night at HER ROOFTOP bar, where the terrace is open until 1am.
