Events in Victoria

Whether it's the Melbourne Cup or Melbourne Festival, Victoria is a busy place

Victoria's capital city Melbourne is Australia's answer to London or Paris - often regarded as a very 'European' experience. With the city filled with great laneways, coffee shops, art galleries and boutiques, Melbourne offers a great city to explore on your holiday. Plus, there are so many different hotel and apartment options, you will not be short of options.

Melbourne is host to some huge sporting events throughout the year. The most popular are of course The Melbourne Cup, held each year in November. Then of course, Victoria is the birthplace of AFL. Generally the Grand Final books out hotel rooms months in advance at very high rates - so book well in advance. You can usually expect the final to be held at the end of September of the Long Weekend.

If sport isn't your thing, there are so many music and arts festivals its naive to even try and list them. St Kilda Film Festival, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Melbourne Writers Festival. The list goes on.

Melbourne accommodation offers some great options not found in many other cities. Given Melbourne has an extensive and well used tram system, holiday makers do not need to be in the city centre to explore, and you will often find great 4.5 star serviced apartments in areas like South Yarra and St Kilda at significantly lower rates than city hotels.

Why not book a serviced apartment in Docklands? This new suburb just adjacent to the city centre offers some brand new accommodation options, and is just a few minutes from Etihad Stadium and Southern Cross Train Station. Accommodation here is especially cheap during weekends as this is a primarily business district, however still only minutes into Chinatown and beyond.

Melbourne Fringe Festival is one of the cities most popular annual events, held 17th September - 5th October. This is a busy time in Victoria co-inciding with the AFL Grand Final and many other events heading into summer. Book today with world-blue.com for your favourite event in Victoria.
