Over the years I’ve attended an amazing array of shows and events at this central attraction. My favourite was probably the martin scorcese exhibit and movie screenings. TIP: keep eye out as they always have great events

Believing the marketing hype my boys (aged 8 & 9) and I were excited as lining up to enter temporary Arboria outside ACMI at Fed Sq. Like you’ve been shrunken and squeezed into the guts of a colourful jumping castle we ventured in. As boys...More

Hi Simon Sorry that Arboria didn't live up to your expectations but it wasn't actually our event. Arboria was staged by Fed Square, we simply sold the tickets for them as they don't have a system to do so.

It's free and there's plenty of activities for the very young though adult may find it a bore due to the lack of things to do/see. The main highlight would be the exhibits that require a paid ticket and they're generally quite captivating (we have...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
