The unique Melbourne Food and Wine Festival continues until March 30th operating on a not for profit basis. The Festival's charter is to promote the quality produce, talent and lifestyle of Melbourne and the State of Victoria and to reinforce Melbourne as the pre-eminent culinary city of Australia. There are many much loved events such as the World's Longest Lunch, Spice Bazaar and Hawkers Market.
This Sunday you might see many people running through the city for the Run For The Kids - Royal Childrens Hospital Appeal. While the 2006 course received overwhelming positive feedback, the new 15.2km course is even better! It incorporates all of the unique features that have proven it to be a landmark event, giving participants access to normally off-limits roads, and now includes a start/finish area in the same location, eliminating many transportation issues and making it easier for family and friends who are not competing to be part of the fun and closer to the action.
Autumn Garden Festival is on this weekend. Open garden weekend at Canterbury: an enchanting sensory garden for all to enjoy.
Devonshire teas and sandwiches available. Also featured will be homemade jams, marmalades and chutneys, plant stall, handcrafts, lucky dip and bric-a-brac.
