Even after a 3-day break it’s nice to know another weekend is just around the corner. As the New Year comes into full swing there are oodles of free events happening all over the country and it’s about time you took advantage!
Here’s our Destination Weekend for you and the family to enjoy this week.
Melbourne: Chinese New Year
This weekend marks the beginning of Chinese New Year as festivities hit the streets of Melbourne. The inner city suburb of Richmond will play host to cultural performances, activities and fabulous food events all weekend and we can’t wait to check it out. With exotic fruits and flowers taking over the streets it’s set to be a very colourful celebration!

PERTH: Fringe for Kids
The first Sunday of every month brings a FREE family event to Northbridge Plaza, Perth. This coming Sunday it’s time for Piazzarama: Fringe Kids, a day full of fun activities like face painting, circus skills and live music to name a few. And if that wasn’t enough, the open-air plaza will be screening two free movies throughout the afternoon – now that’s not a bad way to spend the day!
BRISBANE: Frolicking fairies
Is your house sometimes full of wannabe fairies with wings and wands flying everywhere? If so, gather your fleet and flutter down to Frolicking Fairies this weekend at Majestic Park, Coorparoo. Your little fairies can dress to impress for the day, enjoy a fairy picnic, fairy stories and lots of FREE feel-good fun! Entry is free but don’t forget to register! Image via Two Rainbows
MELBOURNE: Summersalt Festival
Sumersalt Festival is the outdoor festival set to shake your imagination upside down and side to side! Housed in Melbourne’s Arts Precinct, the month long event has already received rave reviews from visitors and locals alike. Exxopolis (seen above), is the inflatable structure wowing the crowds with its inside world of colour and light. The combination of free and paid events makes this a must-visit for the weekend ahead.
