7 Things To Do in Melbourne This Weekend

From immersive art exhibitions to a vegan haven and bottomless footy games, we bring you 7 entertaining things to do this weekend in Melbourne.

Taking you on an immersive voyage from one continent to another, Sir David Attenborough narrates the BBC Earth Experience currently showing at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. With his hypnotic voice, the celebrated biologist guides you through the elements, the different terrains and unique animals of every continent, submerging you in glorious imagery with light and sound transporting you to Africa, Antarctica and Asia before bringing you to Australia, North America, South America and Europe. Watch as the northern lights dance all around you before you are delved under the sea to swim with the different fish. The BBC Earth Experience, which closes this Sunday, is perfect for young and old and definitely a unique exhibition not to be missed.

For avid fans of Star Wars, head to Westfield Doncaster for your last chance to take in A Star Wars Experience, inviting you to step inside the world of Star Wars with this world-first immersive visual tour of the planet Batuu, bringing you straight into the galaxy.

For a sweet treat this weekend for the whole family make your way to Cold Rock for the ice creamery’s new ice-cream lasagne. The limited edition ice-cream cake is inspired by Garfield’s favourite dish with layers of crunchy wafer sheets, chocolate fudge, strawberry sauce and smooth ice-cream.

Basketball and its greats are being celebrated at the Docklands with The NBA Exhibition. The show is the NBA’s first official global touring exhibition and showcases 20 sections where fans will discover authentic and autographed items, as well as digital and interactive experiences. The exhibition also boasts the Trophy Wall and a fun Measure Up! area where you can compare your hand and foot size to some of the game’s most famous players.

The Lume’s latest immersive exhibition will wash you in the world famous masterpieces painted by the great Leonardo da Vinci. The exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci - 500 Years of Genius, invites you to walk through and take in the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper on a larger-than-life scale, projected all around the space you can get up close and personal to the greatest artworks in the world.

This Friday and Saturday night you can enjoy Bottomless Footy at the Ballers Clubhouse in Carlton. Unlimited pints, house wine and cocktails served with hotdogs and unlimited fries will fuel your footy nights, and on Saturday you can try your luck playing darts with Dipper, the footy legend who will be on hand for a fun game.

Embrace your inner boho and feed your soul with free workshops, aura photos and live music at the Boho Luxe Market at Fed Square, the free event will be held on Sunday and will include creative flower workshops as well as vegan food trucks for foodies.
