HOT: Persimmon, Ground Level NGV International, 180 St Kilda Rd, Southbank

I have to admit that I am a bit skeptical when it comes to gallery or concert hall restaurants. I feel that when a building’s main purpose is not to be a restaurant then there’s no real incentive to serve good food. Add to that the fact that they are  catering for a captive audience of hungry […]

Sydney based artist Lisa Tomasetti currently has a free exhibition of photographs she took for the Australian Ballet […]

HOT: Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, Carlton Gardens & Royal Exhibition Building, 9 Nicholson St, Carlton

Join the busloads of grannies this weekend and check out the 18th Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, which has taken over Carlton Gardens until Sunday 24 March. I have a habit of regularly killing potted herbs (the extent of my gardening) and I enjoyed wondering around the beautiful displays and exhibits of Australia’s biggest flower […]
