Victorians know how to have fun. Pick any night of the week and enjoy a diverse range of entertainment options on offer – from live music and comedy to films and international sporting events.
The days of our nights
Time your visit to catch one of the many festivals and sporting events happening throughout the year. In sports-mad Melbourne, the footy season grips the whole city, while the annual comedy, film and arts festivals are a great way to see local and international acts in one place.
Melbourne music mecca
Known the world over for its evergreen music scene, Melbourne's the place to catch the latest acts making a splash. Venues like Cherry Bar, The Espy and The Tote should all be on your list. And when the night kicks on, grab your dancing shoes and head to one of the city's famous clubs. Love Machine and Revolver are both known for a good time after dark.
On summer holidays, round up family and friends for an outing to the tennis or cricket. Prefer the movies? Try Moonlight Cinema or Rooftop Cinema for an al fresco flick. Otherwise, grab a choc top and see art-house films and blockbusters at local independent and mainstream cinemas. The Nova, the Astor, and the Sun are some of our favourites.
