If you were lucky enough to snag a four-day weekend for Australia day, you’ll be heading into this week a little worse for wear—but don’t worry, we’ll be gentle with these awesome things to do in Melbourne this week.
Shimmerlands Outdoor Cinema
Because Melbourne doesn’t have enough outdoor cinemas, right? This modest alternative to the larger cinemas has changed locations from the Abbotsford convent to Melbourne University in Parkville. Offering a hand-crafted selection of satisfying contemporary cinema the lineup will be running until the end of Feb—BYO choc top. Check out the full program list here.
Yarra Street Food Fest
Well and truly underway churning out food and vibes until the end of Feb, here’s another food truck festival to add to your list. Make the most of this weather and dabble in a mixture of cuisines at Burnley Circus Park. Check out which food trucks will be on site here.
Club Aperol @ Riverland
Spend your afternoons at Riverland, relaxing on beanbags (or deck chairs) watching the sun go down. DJs will be spinning beats all day long and there will be a charcoal spit roast to fill any grumbling bellies. The best part? Aperol Spritz are only $10 a pop. Get all the deets here.
Wednesday 1 February
Wing It Wednesdays At Northcote Social Club
Head north to get yourself a clucking good feed with Northcote Social’s Wednesday special on chicken wings. For only $1 per wing, it really doesn’t matter why the chicken crossed the road, as long as it got to the plate to get in your mouth.
Book a table so you don’t miss out.
Friday 3 February
The Food Truck Park – Taco and Tequila Fiesta
The taco and tequila fiesta is coming in hot on Friday night, combining everyone’s two loves of eating greasy food and getting cultured by drinking alcohol. Sure to bring the flavour, The Food Truck Park in Preston will transport you to Latin America from 5pm. Some of the best street cuisine from Brazil to Cuba, combined with authentic Latin DJ’s to put on one hell of a weekend. Have a sneak peak of the lineup here.
Are 5 things not enough for you? Well here's everything else that's happening right now.
