While the chilled, brisk mornings of Winter may not be what Australia is known for across the globe, the cooler months see Melbourne turn into a treasure trove of fantastic sights, sounds and, of course, tastes. So, while the Summer may draw out those of us who enjoy the bustling beaches and warm nights, the cooler comforts and exciting events make July the perfect time to experience what Melbourne has to offer.

Celebrating ten years filling the streets of Fitzroy with stunning colour and light pieces, the 2017 Gertrude Street Projection Festival will see the buildings and laneways transformed by over 30 works curated by RMIT lecturer Fiona Hillary. This sensational large-scale collaborative work of art will be working its magic from July 21st – July 30th, meaning you have no excuse for missing out on this spectacle.
Van Gogh is arguably the most recognisable and revered artist in history.
However, while works such as “The Starry Night” are forever ingrained in the mind of those with even a passing interest in the arts, there has rarely been an exhibition that delves into the passions of this artist quite like the National Gallery of Victoria’s Van Gogh and the Seasons.
Boasting over 35 works spanning his posthumously famed career, this exhibition looks to showcase Van Gogh’s love and appreciation for the seasons, a topic that has been shown as one of his most defined subjects of interest and inspiration. So, whether you’re an art lover, or simply looking to appreciate a beautiful snapshot of history’s most revered artist, it’s certainly worth the admission fee.
Looking for a way to spend your Wednesday nights in style?
The Winter Night Market spans from the 7th of June to the 30th of August, offering a fantastic explorative experience laced with lighting installations, live performances and unique culinary delights. Best enjoyed with a warm beverage in hand and some close friends, this wonderful offering is one of the yearly delights Melbourne has on offer each year.
Stepping out of the confines of Melbourne’s inner suburbs, Ballarat’s Winter Festival is everything you would expect from a large-scale community event in a revered historic town. Known as an educational landmark, each year sees thousands of kids travelling to this relatively remote town to learn the historical background of Australia’s gold-mining past.
With everything from potato festivals to the Ballarat Brew Festival (a fantastic chance to wet your whistle with an array of local beers), the month of July is perfect for a mid-year adventure into Australia’s past.
Whatever your interests may be, Melbourne’s Winter is sure to have at least a handful of things for you to get excited about on your next holiday. To ensure that you have the best accommodation on your July getaway, contact RNR Melbourne and book a serviced apartment today!
