We’ve rounded up five of our favourite things to do below!
5 things you must do in Melbourne this Summer
1. Check out The Night Markets
The Summer Night Market will no doubt become your weekly Wednesday ritual if you live near the city. Now in it’s 19th year, the Market features delicious global street food, curated bars, artisan stall holders and quirky activations.
There are three live music stages to be found around the historic Market sheds, as well as roving entertainers, buzzing alley communal dining areas and all the atmosphere of a summer festival.
2. Watch Cirque Du Soleil’s latest spectacular, KOOZA
Now playing under the famous blue-and-yellow Big Top at Flemington Racecourse, KOOZA is an impressive show with incredible acts, gorgeous set and costumes, constant laughs, heart-stopping stunts and seriously talented live musicians.
3. Pull up a blanket at Cinema at the ‘G
Cinema at the ‘G is back this summer on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 February.
This super-cool cinema event will allow us to sit back and relax on the hallowed MCG turf and will feature the yet-to-be-released Lion on opening night, and the Tom Hanks blockbuster, Sully on Saturday night.
4. Try the new Iced-Tea cocktail menu at Melbourne Public
You’ve experienced the rush of an Espresso Martini, knocked back a few Jam Donuts and sipped the afternoon away with a crisp Frosé, but have you tried the newest liquid sensation – the iced tea cocktail?!
Melbourne Public has just launched a series of tea-infused cocktails and they are truly something. With five delicious cocktails to chose from, we recommend ‘tea-sing’ your tastebuds with the The Early of Grey – Gordon’s Gin, Earl Grey Tea, Lemon & Rosemary or Min-Tea Mojito – Pampero Rum, Mint Tea, Lime & Mint.
