Winter is the perfect time to book a short break in Melbourne with its labyrinth of hidden laneways lined with boutique shops and European style cafes, and its choice of art galleries, museums, cultural and sporting events, and restaurants.
Melbourne has a well-earned reputation as the sporting and cultural capital of Australia. This winter, defending A-League champions, Melbourne Victory, will host England’s Tottenham Hotspur, Italy’s Juventus and Spain’s Football Club and UEFA Champions League finalists, Atlético de Madrid (Spain), at the 2016 International Champions Cup from July 23-29. The 2016 Toyota AFL Premiership Season is in full swing with the Grand Final being played on Saturday, 1 October.
There is also a whole range of cultural events taking place this Winter in Melbourne, including the Melbourne International Film Festival (July 28- August 14), 200 Years of Australian Fashion on display at NGV until July 31, and Melbourne Writers Festival (August 26 – September 4). Embrace the wonder of winter as the Winter Night Market returns to Queen Victoria Market Wednesday nights from 5pm to 10pm. Melbourne’s hottest foodies, makers, creators and performers will come together under the historic sheds of Queen Victoria Market for what is now a mid-week winter ritual. There’s something thing new to discover every week with a massive line-up of roving entertainers, live music and guest artists.
