The weeks before winter are a good time to settle in for some quality theatre or start hibernation in an inspiring gallery. Fortunately, Melbourne and Victoria has a lot to offer theatre and art lovers.
See award-winning productions Harry Potter and the Cursed Child , playing at the Princess Theatre, and & Juliet at the Regent Theatre. The Lume has an immersive display of Monet's work and that of his contemporaries at Monet & Friends. ACMI showcases the goddesses of early cinema at the new Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion exhibition. For book lovers, head to the city for the annual Melbourne Writers Festival, held across four jam-packed days in early May.
After something more outdoorsy before the winter chill sets in? Venture further afield to see the golden hues of autumn at the Bright Autumn Festival, or sip delicious drops at the Grampians Grape Escape.
