Melbourne has a diverse and exciting events calendar throughout the year which offers absolutely everything over a wide selection of cultural, educational, sporting and leisure activities.
Here are a selection of some of the events that are being hosted in the city and the surrounding areas during April-June.
This is the 5th annual Piers Festival and is taking place on April 3rd from midday to 7pm. The venue is the Princess Pier, Port Melbourne which is highly significant, as historically it is the entry point that gave birth to multicultural Australia.

Just north of Loch and Korumbarra is the township of Poowong. A picturesque dairy farming area where you can escape the hustle and bustle of urban living.
Live music will combine with some great food, wine, beer and cider to create a great festival atmosphere. Also there will be many market stalls selling hand grown / reared produce as well as arts and crafts.

Similar to the Christmas holiday period the Good Beer Week is filled with feasting, drinking and partying with family and friends. The event brings a special sense of community to the city.
Victoria prides itself on brewing with impeccable standards so it is important that the festival reflects that.
The visitors to the event will be taken through an exploration of new flavours, concepts and beers. The brief to established breweries and newcomers to challenge themselves both in brews and create something extraordinary. This year there is over 270 events so the bar has been set high.
June 3rd – June 12th
