WEL­COME TO MEL­BOURNE

Where Melbourne - - Where -

Mel­bourne par­ties in Novem­ber with the iconic Mel­bourne Cup horse race, which is the fo­cus of not only the city, but the whole coun­try, at the be­gin­ning of the month.

Jenny Burns ex­plains all you need to know about the Mel­bourne Cup and the sur­round­ing events that make up Novem­ber’s Spring Rac­ing Car­ni­val (page 12).

Penny Wat­son ex­plores the pop­u­lar­ity of Australia’s hum­ble toasted sand­wich, and finds the Mel­bourne hotspots that are serv­ing these sim­ple, gourmet taste sen­sa­tions (page 8).

Our cover this month fea­tures Bendigo Art Gallery’s new exhibition, “The Cos­tume De­signer: Edith Head and Hol­ly­wood”. The exhibition hon­ours the life and work of mul­ti­ple Academy Award-win­ning cos­tume de­signer Edith Head, con­sid­ered the most sig­nif­i­cant cos­tume de­signer in the his­tory of cin­ema (pages 24 and 56).

Turn to the Where Now fea­ture (page 14) for Novem­ber’s must-see ex­hi­bi­tions and events in­clud­ing Taste of Mel­bourne food fes­ti­val, Toorak Vil­lage Art Walk and the Night Noo­dle Mar­kets at Bir­rarung Marr.

How­ever you choose to spend your time here in Mel­bourne, we hope you have an en­joy­able stay!
