Docklands Public Art Walk
Spring is now here, what better way to make the most of the new sunny season than with a stroll around Docklands on the Public Art Walk?

The self guided urban art tour takes you across many of the Docklands precincts to view over 30 public artworks. Melbournians love of culture and the arts are reflected in the pieces such as the ‘Cow Up a Tree’, ‘Silence’, & ‘Walk of Stars’.

The artworks bring colour & life to the Docklands, and reflect the themes of water, indigenous history, the industrial and maritime past and contemporary urban setting.

You can download the Docklands Public Art walk brochure here to see a map and background information on all the pieces.

Half Price Ice Skating for Bombers Fans
To keep Essendon fans amused whilst their team takes a bye this week, Medibank Icehouse is offering 50% off skating!

Warm up after hitting the ice at a nearby restaurant. Mecca Bah is a great choice for a casual bite to eat with great waterfront views. Choose a minced lamb and pinenut bourek or Lebanese sausages with spicy chickpeas, or perhaps decide from one of the freshly baked Turkish pizzas.
