Af­ter rev­el­ling in th­ese two ex­hi­bi­tions, con­tinue your cul­tural cam­paign in Mel­bourne.

While at the NGV in South­bank, ven­ture to the Aus­tralian Cen­tre for Con­tem­po­rary Art, and a hop, skip and a jump away from the ACMI view the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion at the Ian Pot­ter Gallery.

Pop in and out of the com­mer­cial gal­leries on Flin­ders Lane or stum­ble upon artist col­lec­tives in the in­nerMel­bourne sub­urb of Fitzroy.

Dis­cover the re­gion’s his­tory at Mel­bourne Mu­seum, rev up your ed­u­ca­tion at the Na­tional Mu­seum of Sport at the Mel­bourne Cricket Ground, or un­veil the city’s East­ern her­itage at the Chi­nese Mu­seum in mod­ern Chi­na­town.

Me­an­der down the city’s laneways and by­ways and stum­ble across pub­lic works of art: ex­pres­sive graf­fiti, light in­stal­la­tions and chal­leng­ing sculp­tures.

Catch a block­buster at the beau­ti­fully re­stored Princess, Re­gent or Her Majesty’s the­atres.

For a laugh, get tick­ets to a play at the Com­edy The­atre, or see a lo­cal pro­duc­tion at the Vic­to­rian Arts Cen­tre or Malt­house The­atre.

From June, the Re­gent The­atre hosts the the­atri­cal event of the year – King Kong.

The ground­break­ing pro­duc­tion will fea­ture a cast of more than 40 ac­tors, singers, dancers and cir­cus per­form­ers and a team of pup­peteers who will bring to life one of the most ad­vanced pup­pets in the world – a one-tonne, six-me­tre-high sil­ver­back go­rilla. See kingkongliveon­stage.com.

Dive into Mel­bourne’s vast and eclec­tic mu­sic scene with a live gig at the city’s many pubs, clubs or con­cert venues. All gen­res of mu­sic can be en­joyed, from both lo­cal up-and-com­ers and in­ter­na­tional su­per­stars.

For the clas­sics, check the Mel­bourne Sym­phony Orches­tra’s cal­en­dar, visit the new Mel­bourne Recital Cen­tre to ex­pe­ri­ence an Opera Aus­tralia pro­duc­tion or a per­for­mance by the Aus­tralian Bal­let Com­pany.
