The weeks before winter are a good time to settle in for some quality theatre or commence hibernation in an inspiring gallery. Fortunately, Melbourne and Victoria has a lot to offer theatre and gallery lovers. The awe-inspiring production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is playing at Her Majesty's Theatre, while The Lume has a spectacular immersive display of Monet's work and that of his contemporaries at Monet & Friends. After something more outdoorsy before the winter chill sets in? Head further afield to see the golden hues of autumn at the Bright Autumn Festival, or sip delicious drops at the Grampians Grape Escape.
