Winter in St kilda!


Winter in Melbourne is awash with colour, action and unmissable moments. There’s a sense of occasion and a buzz in the air, day and night. Hear the laughter of comedy gig-goers, the clink of glasses at food and wine festival events and the oohs-and-aahs of fashion’s dedicated followers.

Autumn is one of the best times of the year to visit Melbourne, with big events in town. And with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Moulin Rouge! The Musical and HAMILTON playing, your itinerary’s going to be packed. There’s just so many unmissable events to make the most of – and a bounty of new bars and hot restaurants to hop between before the sun comes up. Sleep? Overrated. Melbourne in autumn? Unmissable.

The best winter walks in Melbourne.

Summer may be over, but this time of year is perfect for getting outdoors. Take a stroll among autumn leaves, golden sunshine and cool, misty air.

Carlton Gardens

The scaffolding is down and the Royal Exhibition Building looks more stunning than ever. Visit at sunset while the gardens are shrouded in autumn leaves to catch a perfect rose gold scene. The striking Hochgurtel Fountain is an ideal spot to stop and reflect, rain, hail or shine. From there it’s an easy stroll to Lygon Street’s heart-warming Italian charm.

Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria – Short tram ride from St kilda (Tram no 16 about 15 mins)

One of Australia’s most beautiful outdoor spaces, the Royal Botanic Gardens is made for wanderers, explorers and nature lovers. It’s full of deciduous trees bright with autumn colour, and inviting mountains of fallen leaves. Stroll around the ornamental lake for different views of autumn foliage. The new arid garden and glittering Guilfoyle’s Volcano are a must visit, too.

Kings Domain

You may have walked through Kings Domain on your way to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl or the Shrine of Remembrance. But have you ambled along the avenue of poplar trees, which turn gold in autumn? Or admired the water nymph statues? You can also discover a sacred Indigenous site marked by the Aboriginal Burial Stone, and a monument to war hero Weary Dunlop.

Everywhere you look, there’s something amazing to experience in the city this autumn season. So give us a call at Cosmo, book your ideal room, and be part of all the action!
