STATE DI­REC­TOR FOR VIC­TO­RIA

Where Melbourne - - Contents - By Nik Adams

THE VIC­TO­RIAN MEM­BERS started off the month by cel­e­brat­ing the an­nounce­ment of our lat­est In­ter­na­tional Honouree Mem­ber, Where Magazine’s own Cather­ine Stevens. Mem­bers ar­ranged a sur­prise celebration at the Hophaus in Southgate. It was a well-de­served celebration for a very pop­u­lar mem­ber!

A taste of the Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula has come to Melbourne city with Green Olive at Red Hill win­ery open­ing a store in the Cause­way Ar­cade. Mem­bers were in­vited to sam­ple goods at the store by own­ers Greg and Sue O’donoghue. It was a great op­por­tu­nity to not only taste their fan­tas­tic wines but also try their range of body lo­tions. We rec­om­mend you pop in, if you can’t make it down to the Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula.

Our lat­est mem­ber’s meet­ing was re­cently hosted by Crown Tow­ers. Af­ter­wards we were in­vited by the Emer­ald Group to visit their stores in the Crown com­plex. We had the op­por­tu­nity to visit Graff Di­a­monds, Rolex and LK Bou­tique. It was a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into their lux­ury brand of prod­ucts and a great op­por­tu­nity to meet the man­agers of each store. Sev­eral concierge were seen to be mak­ing notes on fu­ture pur­chases.

Dia­logue in the Dark is a new ven­ture that has opened in the Dock­lands area of Melbourne. Opened in part­ner­ship with Guide Dogs Aus­tralia, it gives you the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence a day in Melbourne with­out the sense of sight. Sev­eral of Melbourne’s concierge were in­vited to walk through and try the ex­pe­ri­ence. As­sisted by their guide Fran­cois, the concierge were walked through the ex­pe­ri­ence of rid­ing a Melbourne tram, go­ing to the footy at the MCG and even just cross­ing Bourke Street. It is a very unique ex­pe­ri­ence and well rec­om­mended for all to try.
