5 Awesome Things To Do In Melbourne This Week

By Gen Nenna - 20 Feb 2017


So...is it actually summer? Put this recent cold snap behind you, throw on your puffer jacket in a fashion that would usually suit mid-July and get out and take on the week. Just because the sun's gone away doesn't mean the events have stopped. As always, there are plenty of options to drink, eat, and entertain yourself through the working week.

The Age of Bones at La Mama Courthouse

Inspired by the real-life stories of 60 Indonesian boys jailed in Australia for working on refugee boats, Sandra Thibodeaux’s The Age of Bones follows the story of an Indonesian boy who fails to return home from a fishing trip. Set in the ocean in an underwater court, The Age of Bones is beautifully told through shadow puppets, video and music.
