Fire, lights and all things nice! This year’s free Winter Night Markets at Queen Victoria Market is a Wednesday night treat to excite your senses.

Spread over ten days, the 20th anniversary of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival will have you dancing along the Yarra River.

Wine, dine and pasta your way through the Italian Wine and Food Festival! With over 200 wines to choose from, pop-up restaurants and cooking classes, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
