MELBOURNE | Tuesday 29th January to Monday 4th February 2013

This week it's time to party on Melbourne's most-loved Promenade with the St Kilda Festival. St Jerome's Laneway Festival returns to Footscray for a day of live music and art, while Dandenong's Heritage Hill opens its doors for a great day out for the family.

For sports fans, there's some good old fashioned sibling rivalry as Soccer sees Melbourne's very own teams clash in Docklands.

Have a great week in Melbourne!
