Pyramid and Falls Music Festivals
Festival season kicks off this weekend with an ear splitting line-up at both rock fests. N.E.R.D., Arrested Development and Wagons turn the dial to 11 at Pyramid, while at The Falls Joan Jett, The National and Washington to lullaby Lorne into the New Year.
It’s Hammer Time
For the next month go flaky over the baby Hammerheads at Melbourne Aquarium. Not sure what happens to them after this month (maybe they just become ‘regular’ hammerheads) but you can also see a new jellies exhibition plus a re-jigged coral atoll with new White-tipped eagle and Honeycomb whiptail rays.

See a Movie Outside
In a garden, on a beach or on top of building, Melbourne’s blessed with a bounty of open air cinemas in summer. Moonlight, Rooftop and St. Kilda Open Air are now all in full swing, or for a dose of vintage air cruise by Coburg Drive In.
Thurston Moore, blowing up letters, circus, music and plenty of dancing at Melbourne Festival. The party starts this week.
Our pick of the bunch from The Wheeler Centre's May program, including superstars, spies and very clever clogs.
February is the time for turning resolutions into actions and there's plenty of lit action in the shortest month to keep you on track.
