As spring unfurls and daylight lingers longer, Melbourne freshens up with seasonal promise, so put some spring in your step with a weekend city break.
Overnight in a boutique bolthole or find yourself a chic neighbourhood pad. Grab tickets to an art exhibition or a Fringe Festival event. Spruce up for the Spring Racing Carnival and head out to live music gigs at band rooms, pubs, and after-dark venues with Cinderella sensibilities.
As the city sheds its layers, shop spring fashions and explore the latest, while arts, design and music spill out into Melbourne's blossoming laneways, parks and gardens.
