WELCOME TO MELBOURNE
Melbourne goes crazy for football this month … Aussie Rules football to be precise! The AFL footy finals take over the city, so you better decide who your team is, and don their colours, then head to a game!
Jenny Burns explains all about the code in her football feature, and shows you where you can go to learn about the history of Melbourne’s favourite sport (page 12).
Our cover star this month is The Australian Ballet’s production of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland © ”. We speak to Principal Artist Amber Scott about her role as Alice (page 14).
Also on this month is Melbourne Theatre Company’s “Di and Viv and Rose”, starring Australian actress Nadine Garner. We chat to Nadine about the play and her love of Melbourne (page 16).
Turn to the Where Now feature (page 18) for September’s must-see exhibitions and performances including the 2017 Royal Melbourne Show, Melbourne Fringe Festival and “The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture” exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.
However you choose to spend your time here in Melbourne, we hope you have an enjoyable stay! Roshan Sukhla Publishing Editor
