Five things to do in Melbourne over summer


Blender Lane Artists Market

Adjacent the Queen Victoria, tucked away off Franklin Street, is Blender Lane and every Wednesday evening this summer this tight little laneway is being transformed into an artists’ market.
Quirky and colourful market stalls are showcasing a variety of art, illustration, craft, design, textile and jewellery.
See if you can’t find a little ‘Made-in-Melbourne’ piece of art or just enjoy the chilled atmosphere with performing arts and live music.

Moonlight Cinema

Moonlight Cinema is back on and runs from December ’15 – March ’16 on the Central Lawn in the Royal Botanic Gardens. Get yourself a good posy on the grass, or splash out on and get yourself a reserved bean bed in Gold Grass beanbag and enjoy some great films under the stars.

Dine out, at a food truck

For sensational food on the move, visit one of Melbourne’s food trucks: an integral part of the city’s vibrant street and food culture.

See the Andy Warhol – Ai Weiwei Exhibition

The exhibition of works from these two highly influential artists has been extremely popular with the Melbourne gallery-going public. In this exhibition the NGV presents more than 300 works, including major new commissions, immersive installations and a wide representation of paintings, sculpture, film, photography, publishing and social media.

The Melbourne Laneway Festival

It might have moved from its original home in Melbourne’s laneways to the banks of the Maribyrnong River, but the Melbourne Laneway Festival still delivers the goods and has a happy knack of putting together a bill that features a band or two who later shoot to stardom. This year the line-up includes, Vince Staples, Grimes, Churches and Ali Barter.
