How to have the best summer
Spend your Wednesday nights surrounded by food, design stalls and entertainment for the 20th edition of Melbourne’s biggest market. More than 60 street food stalls will be serving delicious snacks like smoky American barbecue, bao and tasty toasted sandwiches.
Fans of Australian music – the museum of your dreams is here. Arts Centre Melbourne's brand new exhibition space (opening December 19) will be an immersive trip through Aussie musical history, with recordings, images, instruments and memorabilia from luminaries like Archie Roach, Kylie Minogue, Nick Cave, Silverchair, AC/DC, John Farnham and many more. Stay tuned for more updates closer to opening.
Cool off at a rooftop bar
Whether you're after beers and sun or moonlight and cocktails, these high altitude drinking spots are well worth the climb.
Too hot? Here's what to do
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.
