WELCOME TO MELBOURNE
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!
