Why you should love Winter in Melbourne

Why you should love Winter in Melbourne

Let’s face it getting excited about Winter isn’t always easy. Melbourne has decided to show us this week that Winter is well and truly on its way. The cold season has so many wonderful things to offer so we thought it would be a good time to remind you of all the best things about Winter in Melbourne.

Mulled Wine Bars

There are bars in Melbourne that specialise in Mulled Wine. A glass of mulled wine with some hearty food and a roaring fire can’t help but get you feeling cosy. If you are in Fitzroy Baxter’s Lot serves a delightful Mulled Wine. If you in the CBD Cabinet Bar and Balcony will warm your souls with its Mulled Wine.

Hot Springs

Grab your favourite people and take a day trip to Mornington Peninsula and visit the Hot Springs. There is no better feeling than heating up in the hot springs while it is freezing cold outside. You will leave feeling recharged and re energised.

Footy Season

AFL games are on all through winter and there is no better way to prove how much of a Melbournian you are then by getting behind your favourite team. Put on your supporters scarf and beanie and head down the MCG to support them.

Winter Getaways

There is just something about weekend getaways to the beach in winter. The sea is raw and blustery and atmospheric. You are able to get a good deal on accommodation because it is low season and there won’t be too many other tourists around. For the ski bunnies drive up to one of the ski fields and spend your days hitting the slopes.

Pop Up Ice Skating at Federation Square

From the 1st of July to the 23rd of July from 10am to 10pm there is a pop up Ice Skating Rink at Fed Square.  You can skate around with the Yarra River in the back ground. Follow up with a hot chocolate and some winter warming food.
