HOT: Winter Night Market, Queen Victoria Market, Corner of Elizabeth & Victoria Streets, Melbourne

The Night Market at Queen Victoria Market is one of Melbourne’s wintery highlights and this year the season has been extended for 14 weeks, every Wednesday from 1 June to 31 August.

HOT: Royal Croquet Club, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

Royal Croquet Club is a pop up food, entertainment, sporting and lifestyle festival open for just 2 weeks until Sunday 1 February. I reckon it’s the hottest place to hang out this summer.

HOT: Afghanistan Pop Up cafe, Melbourne Museum, Nicholson St, Carlton

Every year Melbourne Museum hosts a special winter international exhibition and this year’s showcase Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures is from the National Museum of Kabul.
