Winter has arrived in Melbourne, but don't hibernate at home!
Get out and about and enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer, both outdoors and in.
Indulge your palate and feed your soul.
Good food and wine show
The popular Good Food and Wine Show is on from June 3 to 5, 2016, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, aka Jeff's Shed.
Feast on a myriad food and wine samples and tastings and watch celebrity chefs perform at the Good Food Theatre.
Luminaries include the irrepressible Miguel Maestre, Colin Fassnidge, Sammy and Bella, and Matt Moran.
Check out the nudie Chill Out zone, the Grazing Garden and VIP Lounge.
Melbourne Chilli Festival
On Saturday, June 4, some of Melbourne’s hottest food trucks will gather to raise funds for the Prahran Mission by staging a big Chilli Festival in a vacant parking lot next door to brunch hot spot, Hobba in Malvern.
Participating in the festival will be Dos Diablos, Billy Van Creamy, Little Mushroom Co, Soul Kitchen Pizza and Hobba, with all outlets offering exclusive chilli specials, together with their regular menus.
The highlight is a chilli eating competition and participants are asked to sign a waiver (whew!)
Entry fees for the competition go to Prahran Mission.
If you're wondering what to eat at the festival, why not try chilli ice cream, tempting tacos, mushroom burgers, wood-fired pizza and gourmet souvlakis?
Non- chilli, vegatarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available.
Head to the carpark next to Hobba at 424 Malvern Rd, Prahran, from 6 to 10pm and help a good cause.
KIGA at Kirra Galleries
In conjunction with the Light in Winter festival, Kirra Galleries at Federation Square is featuring glass sculptures from its 2016 Kirra Illuminating Glass Award (KIGA).
Drop in at Fed Square and view these exquisite pieces.
