By Sophie Colvin - 17 Aug 2015

There’s a stack load of cool stuff happening in Melbourne this week, as always it was tough whittling it down to a list of five. Kick off your week with a dessert degustation and finish it with a German Haus Boat Party to have a truly epic seven days.

If you’re chasing things to do in Melbourne this week, look no further.

Monday 17th

Get Tickets to The Seed Fund

Aussie music legend, Paul Kelly tells the story of not being able to get a record deal in 1984—he had to borrow money from a friend to launch his career; something that not every talented but struggling musician is able to do.

It was this concept that saw the birth of The Seed, a music-focused not-for-profit organisation that was developed with the aim of giving musicians a leg-up in their quest to become professionals in their industry. The brainchild of John Butler and Danielle Caruana (Mama Kin), The Seed offers financial and professional development support to those doing great things in Australian music.

Anyway, in order to be able to give such a helping hand, The Seed is hosting a gig with a seriously impressive line up of Aussie musicians. To be held at The Athenaeum Theatre on Monday October 12, the gig will be hosted by Triple J’s Zan Rowe and will feature the talents of Missy Higgins, San Cisco, Emma Louise, Paul Kelly and John Butler. You’ll need to be quick for tickets.

Tuesday 18th

Stokehouse Dessert Degustation

Hooley dooley, all our decadent dessert dreams have come together in real life in the form of this epic dessert degustation at Stokehouse. No mucking around with entrees or mains, just straight to six courses of the good stuff. Think malted mousse, caramel doughnuts, raspberry vinegar and popcorn sorbet. And that’s just one course. This sweet little extravaganza is $95 per person for six courses of decadent dessert with matched beverages.  Treat yo self and book tickets directly from Stokehouse by calling 03 9525 5555.

Wednesday 19th – Saturday 22nd

Celebrate Munich Brauhaus’ 1st Birthday

Our favourite German beer joint, Munich Brauhaus is turning one! And as you’d expect, they’re celebrating in epic, good-time party style. Or, to be more specific, they’re celebrating with a Haus Boat Party. Some might call this a good ol’ booze cruise, but it’s set to be so much better than that. Being held over five epic nights, you and your pals can jump on board Das Uber Boot for an unforgettable night of Munich style mayhem.

Thursday 20th – Sunday 23rd

Feel Good Festival

With ball pits, flower carts, nail art and much, much more on offer, it’s hard to not be happy at the thought of the Highpoint Feel Good Festival. Encouraging punters to let their hair down and embrace their inner child, the festival program features an adult size ball pit, vibrant craft workshops and a free flower delivery service. Count us in.

Saturday 22nd

Macgrath Signature high tea

It’s the McGrath Foundation’s milestone 10th anniversary year and they’re hosting the McGrath Foundation Signature High Tea. Join the foundation this Saturday for an afternoon of sweet treats and savoury eats that will tickle you pink. Hosted in the Savoy Room of The Grand Hyatt, it’s an afternoon to enjoy great food and recognise the great work the Macgrath Foundation does to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. You can book tickets here.
