With summer still in full swing and a new year ahead of us, there’s a wealth of exciting things happening across Melbourne this February! The sweltering heat brings with it a wide variety of options for those that are willing to face the outdoors.
At RNR Melbourne, we are dedicated to offering the best serviced apartments in Melbourne. Offering centrally-located, stylish accommodation at reasonable rates, you can be sure that you’re always close to the action. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at some of your options for fun and festivities in Melbourne this February!
While Melbourne’s MCG is generally known for its cricket and AFL (if the name Melbourne Cricket Ground didn’t give it away), that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways for the less sport-inclined of us to enjoy the ‘G. This February, Melbournians and tourists alike are invited to experience a fantastic open-air experience at the MCG. However, with only two nights available, it’s best to get in quick.
For the 2019 iteration, Cinema at the ‘G will be playing two of the summer’s biggest blockbusters; Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born. So, whether you’re excited to get into some fantastic films, or are simply looking for a place to rest and relax for the evening, Cinema At the ‘G is absolutely one for the calendar.
Watching movies not your thing? Well, how about soaking in the sights, sounds, and definitely tastes of a cultural celebration? That’s right, Melbourne is celebrating the Year of the Pig with a 15-day exploration of all things China. While the majority of festivities will be taking place in and around Chinatown, the Chinese New Year Festival Melbourne can be enjoyed across the city, with events happening in areas ranging from South Wharf to Docklands to Queensbridge Square.
For those that haven’t experienced it, Chinese New Year in Melbourne is a calendar highlight for many, including yours truly. There are few times when Melbourne is this filled with delicious food and good vibes, and that’s saying something.
If you’ve decided that your February will be spent soaking in movies and gorging on fantastic food, then you might want to mix it up with some outdoor exercise and activities. Luckily, Ride Melbourne has you covered.
For the biking enthusiasts among us, Ride Melbourne is a free community cycling event. Better still, it takes place on the final stage of the 2019 Jayco Herald Sun Tour. This means that you have the opportunity to ride on the same closed off roads as some of the world’s best cyclists, only hours before they take their places at the starting line.
This event is open to all ages, and will make for a fantastic family outing to get the blood pumping!
There is always something to get excited about in Melbourne, and February is no exception. If you are planning your own trip to Australia’s culture capital, contact RNR Melbourne. With centrally-located luxury serviced apartments, book your stay today!
