2. Beginning at Flinders Street Station, see how far you can make it underground through the CBD. Start with the Degraves Street Subway and Campbell Arcade (while you still can – it might be destroyed to make way for the new Metro Tunnel).
3. Knit yourself a woolly scarf. Thread Den, Wool Baa and Morris & Sons can help you brush up on your skills, and many wool merchants host in-store stitch'n'bitch classes so you can buddy up with fellow knitting nerds in the process.
7. Get your hair wet-set. The vintage crew will know what we’re talking about, but for the rest of the world, it involves getting your hair in rollers and hanging out at length under a drying hood – it’s a toasty experience. For a warm head and soft curls Lana Turner style head to Margeaux Valantyne at the Distinctive Dame.
8. Enjoy a brew (a tea, not a beer) at one of our fine tea establishments (like Tea Drop)
10. Shoot stick. Pool’s the indoor sport of the gods, and there’s no better time to indulge than when the weather’s cruel. Head to Red Triangle Snooker Room – you can get a table of your own for a measly $18 an hour (half-price rates are available before 6pm on weekdays).
