Get your fix of art and culture this winter with a packed calendar of brightly lit events around Melbourne and Victoria in June.

In Melbourne, head indoors to explore the goddesses of early cinema at ACMI's Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion exhibition or to the nearby NGV International for the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition Pierre Bonnard: Designed by India Madhavi. Arts festival RISING will descend upon the city for 11 thrilling days, bringing with it live performances of dance and theatre, immersive exhibitions and a giant ice-skating rink on Birrarung Marr (alongside the Yarra River). Or grab your tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child before its Melbourne finale on 9 July. 

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.
