This week Melburnians are yet again spoilt for choice with a bunch of groovy stuff on offer. From Ice Slides to Bastille Day celebrations, everyone will find a way to keep busy! Here are 5 awesome things to do in Melbourne this week.
The infamous ice slide is on for its final week at the Eureka Skydeck. If you’re keen for 40 metres of fun, this is the place to be. It will be a cool -12 degrees within the ice slide, and it’s the first and only ice slide in Melbourne. This is the perfect way to conquer your fear of heights, and show winter what you’re made off.
Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’ has its opening night this Tuesday, and shows are running for just under two weeks, so if you want to see this gripping tale of passion, and be learn that you own life isn’t nearly as dramatic as it seems, grab some tickets, pronto. With tickets starting from $35, it’s time to get cultured, Melbourne.
Mussel Night at The National Hotel
Mussel night is back at The National Hotel! This Melbourne event will suit even the cheapskates among us as you warm yourselves up with half a kilo of mussels for $15! They’ll be cooked Thai-style with creamy coconut, Spanish-style with tomato and chilli, or the Italian way with white wine, garlic, and dill. Seems like the perfect set up for your Thursday, if you ask us.
Bastille Day At Luxembourg
Francophiles of Melbs, get ready. Sticking to tradition and honouring France’s Independence Day, Luxembourg is hosting a delicious dinz to celebrate the occasion. But this won’t be your ordinary French feast...you should expect a twist on the classics! Think roast chicken wrapped in bacon, Provençale fish stew with fresh local seafood, and house made pastries for dessert. For the Hors d’Oeuvres and five courses it’s $85 per person, and you have an option of matching vinos. What better way to celebrate? Vive la France!

We know that you kids just can’t get enough of high tea, and the Intercontinental is here to help you out. Get ready for two blissful hours of indulgence, filled with tempura prawns, finger sandwiches, and raspberry filled mini-doughnuts. A gluten free menu is also available on request, so no one is denied these drool-worthy delights!
