A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream

Yup, you guessed it, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream is waltzing into Melbourne. The night will be filled with lovers, fairies and fools, and you’ll be a fool for missing it. (Don’t worry, it goes on until March.)

Christmas Lights Show

What better way to cap off your Christmas Day than a light show at the Light House? It's Melbourne’s first real-time weather display. The state of the art light installation illuminates a 15-story building and reflects exactly how the weather is feeling. Literally. See for yourself.
