Melbourne celebrates a week of weeks...

This week gives everyone the opportunity to see behind doors that are normally closed. No, it's not Melbourne Open House (July), we have Courts Open Day, Science at Melbourne Museum and Open Day at Public Records Office.

Law Week lets us peek behind the gavel of our justice system. Darebin Homemade Food & Wine Festival is a week-long celebration of food in Preston while I feel like one right about now at Good Beer Week returning for its 4th year.

And make sure you enter the ticket give-away for Luke Hocking's Magic Show further down the newsletter. There are 20 double passes for Friday July 4th to be won.

Enjoy Melbourne!
