Things to do

Melbourne's a city that knows how to live. Choose from fine cuisine, indie rock gigs, plays, festivals and blockbuster sporting events, all across a city that's packed full of parks, gardens and historic architecture. Explore historic arcades and laneways lined with fine dining restaurants, chic cafes, hidden bars and boutiques, or head to one of the many lush gardens throughout the city. Discover Melbourne's obsession with football, cricket and soccer, and visit the hallowed turf of the MCG. With a festival for everything from food, film, art and music, to writing, anime, design and projections, and so much else to see and do about town, there's really no excuse to be a recluse.
