Pay a visit to Melbourne’s newest riverside venue, Arbory Bar and Eatery, housed on a 120 metre long deck spanning two city blocks. Docklands have plenty of bar and dining options on the waterfront, or if you want to head to the city centre, Melbourne’s laneways are full of hidden gems. Try Russell Place, where you’ll be spoilt for choice with Bar AmpereNeapoliGin Palace and Sarti Restaurant.

The pop-up Festival Artisan Bakery and Bar at Queensbridge Square is the perfect place to meet friends. Drop by for a coffee, beer or wine, or grab freshly baked treats to go. But hurry as it’s all over on Saturday 15 March.

Express YourselfFor some family-friendly fun, stop by the NGV for Express Yourself: Romance was Born for Kids, a vibrant interactive exhibition featuring spectacular displays of art works, fashion and other surprises. Children can express themselves by making accessories and drawings and will be immersed in specially developed multimedia environments.
