For incredible events, think Melbourne
Victoria has a fantastic events culture which brings people from Australia and all over the world, attracting millions of visitors per year. In particular, Melbourne boasts a diverse range of events – from internationally acclaimed comedy and fashion festivals, food and wine shows, and sporting events such as the Australian Open, Formula One Grand Prix and the Melbourne Cup broadcast to millions of people across the globe.
The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is a barrel of laughs, really bringing the city to life with performances across Melbourne throughout March and April. Why not make a night of it by enjoying a new or favourite comedian, followed by sampling some of best food and drink this gourmet paradise has to offer? Better yet, consider a bus charter in Melbourne to get around the city with ease.
For lovers of nature’s beauty, the enormous International Garden and Flower Show is a feast for the eyes: held at the gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building in March, this event draws huge crowds as green-thumbs come to be inspired by the best floral and landscape talent in Australia.
White Night is fairly recent addition to Melbourne’s events calendar, but has quickly become a firm favourite for many Victorians: for three nights in August, Melbourne’s inner city parks, gardens and iconic cultural institutions in three key precincts will undergo a spectacular transformation through incredible illumination. As well as an extraordinary visual treat, visitors to White Night can also enjoy enticing local fare and musical talent complementing at the event. There are also now White Nights in Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo, splendidly showcasing the historic architecture of these regional hubs.
Finally, the glitz and glam of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival shouldn’t be missed. As Australia’s largest fashion event, this is a fantastic 10-day celebration of local and international design talent, as well as accompanying events such as beauty workshops and retail events.
