5 Awesome Things To Do This Week In Melbourne

By James Shackell - 26 Mar 2018


Giddy-up, Melbourne. The city might be heading into a drizzly winter full of darkness and despair, but you wouldn’t know it from the diary. MFWF wrapped up, MICF is ‘round the corner, and GBW just dropped its frothy 2018 program. We’ve got more acronyms than a mid-level marketing meeting.

Ready to get cracking? Here are 5 awesome things to do this week in Melbourne.

Tuesday 27 March

Charcoal Chicken Tuesdays

Were there ever three more wonderful words in the English language? Charcoal chicken bloody Tuesdays. The Builders Arms Hotel is kicking off their new chook series this week with free-range chickens cooked over hot coals, served with grain salad and labne (please let there be gravy with that...)

Where: Builders Arms Hotel, 211 Gertrude St
When: Every Tuesday from 5:30pm

Thali Nights At Bhang

Man, Tuesday is looking all kinds of delicious. Bhang is kicking off their exclusive Thali Nights—a meat or veggo Thali plate with dahl, curries, street snacks, salads and pickles, pappas and puris. $30 a head. Book for this one, it’ll fill up fast.

Where: Bang, 2A Mitchell St, Brunswick

Wednesday 28 March

Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Are you ready to laugh? Or at least sit there squirming while a young comic sweats and bombs in front of you?  MICF is back for another year, and we’re pretty pumped. Keep an eye out for celebs roaming the city streets—you might just end up as somebody’s material. Pro tip: check out Michael Shafar this year. That kid is ready to explode.

When: 28 March – 22 April
Where: Various

Thursday 29 March

Melbourne Street Eatz

We’ll ignore that ‘z’ on the end—these guys throw a seriously good street food festival. It’s running from 29 March till 2 April, so you’ve got a few days to check it out. Expect 30+ food trucks, rides, a petting zoo for kids (just to clarify, you pet animals, not the kids) and live music running all weekend. Vegans and veggos, they’re catering for you too.

Where: Gasworks Albert Park
When: 29 March – 2 April

Friday 30 March

Cadbury Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Cadbury is gearing up for another Good Friday, with 400,000 eggs ready to be scoffed at their 18thAnnual Easter Egg Hunt. Tickets sell out faster than Justin Bieber tickets, so be sure to get in quick. All proceeds go towards the Royal Children’s Hospital’s Good Friday appeal–good for taste buds and your karma.

Where: Werribee Park Mansion
When: Friday 30 March
Tickets are available here.

Pop this one in the diary—there's a very prickly Cactus Carnival coming to Melbourne Central
