Newsletter | #147 | What's On this Week

This week's Melbourne events, exhibitions, sports and community guide for Tuesday October 27 to Monday November 2, 2009.

This week… it’s the biggest weekend on the Melbourne calendar and not to mention a favourite (as all long ones are) with next Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup bringing with it a saddlebag of events.

There’s literally something for everyone at the moment with music festivals including the widely popular Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and the Maldon Folk Festival, while foodies and wine connoisseurs are spoilt for choice with festivals like Toast to the Coast in Geelong and the World Vegan Day Festival. Film buffs also get a look in with the chance to get down and dirty, but in a very artistic way, with the return of the Sexy International Film Festival. There’s also the Melbourne Buddhist Film Festival for those who like a touch of Zen with the risqué.

And for those who’ve been graced with a reprieve come Monday and itch for a weekend away, there are plenty of festivals held outside of Melbourne including the Cadell Country Fair at Mathoura’s Visitor Centre. Granted, it’s just across the border, but if you need to phone the centre it’s a Victorian area code, so we’ll take that. It’s much like how Russel Crowe’s an Australian when he’s romped in a good film, but as soon as he flings a phone he’s a New Zealander. Are you paying attention, Mister Gibson? Because the jury’s still out on you, Mel.

With just a taste further down, check here to view more of the following…
