March into Melbourne for an unmissable season of laughs, fun and feasts. Brighten up the warm days and cool nights with a kaleidoscope of colourful festivals and must-do events.

At Melbourne's Regent Theatre, David West Read and Max Martin's coming-of-age musical & Juliet takes centre stage in this hilarious remix of Shakespeare's classic tale of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, which is shaken, stirred and spectacularly remixed.

Passion and flair aren’t just reserved for the stage. Catch some of Australia’s most loved designers as they strut their stuff during the PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival. And cosy up with some of the city’s best chefs and producers during the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, as the city transforms into a gastronomic feast of dining events.

Meanwhile, listen out for the vroom of race cars burning up the track at the FORMULA 1 ROLEX AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX 2023. See some of the country’s hottest comedic acts at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival or immerse yourself in the National Gallery of Victoria’s blockbuster exhibition Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse. While you're here, stop off at the NGV-commissioned Temple of Boom, a colourful reimagining of the ancient Greek temple, the Parthenon.

In between the big events, Melbourne’s cobblestone laneways are begging to be explored and the city’s parks come alive with a soundtrack of crunching leaves. Grab your scarf and let’s go!
