Melbourne Mondays: Urban and Free Events

This is the start of another series of posts that will be focusing on bringing something fun and unique about Melbourne to your attention. This could be links, trivia or events. You never know where the fun could lead. You’ll want to check this out!Australia is still a young country, but that doesn’t mean it stays still. The one thing that Melbourne does boast, is the constant change in the urban space. And for that… I must introduce you to… Urban Melbourne.


This site shows you all the planned and approved changes in around Melbourne. And if you are looking to invest in an apartment, you cannot go past their “Melbourne Off The Plan” link.

Plus, if you love architecture as much as I do, you can keep a pulse on how this city is about to change. If you like old school architecture, then you will love checking out Open House Melbourne. If you want to see the future, then go to Urban Melbourne.

Free Event:

On a side note – the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is hosting it’s annual free summer series in the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. You would be kicking yourself if you missed this! Gates open at 4:30pm – first come, first served. Bring a picnic lunch and blanket – it’s going to be great!
