Set the scene for the forthcoming winter with a packed calendar of brightly lit events around Melbourne and Victoria in June.
Kick-off the chilly season in Victoria with three weeks of events at the East Gippsland Winter Festival. Expect live music, pop up art installations, tasty food and warming mulled wine.
In Ballarat, Christmas comes early with Winter Wonderlights, an after-dark program of sound, lights and theatre at Sovereign Hill. Or head down the coast for your fix of jazz and blues music at the Mornington Winter Music Festival.
