Sure, Melbourne's weather is typically unreliable, but when it's hot, it's hot. Don't hold out for the cool change or spend the day under the air conditioning unit – get out and explore the city's cooler spots.
Beat the heat this summer
There’s nothing quite like an air-conditioned cinema in the middle of summer. IMAX Melbourne not only keeps their cinemas cool and dark, but is currently showcasing movies which explore the cooler, darker places of the world. Of their current exclusives, A Beautiful Planet will shuttle you into space, while Under the Sea will plunge you into the Great Barrier Reef’s refreshing waters.
The crisp white walls of this small contemporary art gallery in Fitzroy are sure to relax both your mind and body after a day in the sun. Displaying only one artist at a time, a visit to Sutton Gallery could hold paintings, sculptures, photography or even video displays.
