Q: As a local, what is the best market to visit in Melbourne and why?

Q: What is the one thing you have to do in Melbourne?

A: Queen Victoria Market has so much great food to eat. If you like hot jam doughnuts, try the American Doughnut Kitchen. It has been there since the 1950s. The Market is also great to buy Melbourne and Australian souvenirs.

For example, you could visit the heritage-listed Block Arcade and enjoy some delicious tea and cakes at the Hopetoun Tea Rooms. Alternatively, you could head down a small laneway and find a great hidden ar such as Bar Americano, which serves great coc tails and coffee.

Q: What is your top-secret shopping spot?

A: I would recommend Brunswick Street in Fitzroy and Smith Street in Collingwood. If you like vintage clothing, that's the place to go. ou can find great prices on popular brands in both streets. Q: Where can we find the best history in the city?

A: Visit Melbourne Museum. On the ground oor the unjila a Aboriginal Cultural Centre displays the history of our Indigenous people through interactive exhibitions.

Q: What is your favourite exhibition guests can visit during April?

Cleverman: The Exhibition It's rare for a television series to extend itself by introducing an art exhibition but this is the case for "Cleverman", an original ABC-TV series that first appeared in 2016. With a predominantly Indigenous cast and crew, this dystopian sci-fi series touches on themes of class, racism and power. To cover many of these topics, this free exhibition at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) looks at First Nations storytelling, language and creativity. When it comes to the making of "Cleverman", the exhibition includes props, costumes and make-up, as well as the designs by Weta Workshop and artwork from the original comic book series. This exhibition has been curated by ACMI and co-curated by "Cleverman" concept creator Ryan Griffen and production designer Jacob Nash.

W HE RE I A P R I L 2019

SEA LIFE MELBOURNE AQUARIUM A pig might not be the first attraction that comes to mind when you think of an aquarium, but it’s no ordinary pig that will be making an appearance at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium these school holidays. This April, beloved cartoon character Peppa Pig will be celebrating 15 years of muddy adventures in marine style, plunging into the aquarium for daily meet and greets from 7 to 21 April. Don’t forget to get your “pigture” taken with her! Cnr King and Flinders Streets, Melbourne. melbourneaquarium.com.au

ARTS CENTRE MELBOURNE This April, visiting families will be let in on a world of secrets at Arts Centre Melbourne. Workshops held throughout the month give kids a taste of what it’s

like to be a comedian, a rockstar or even a magician, as Arts Centre Melbourne calls in the experts to lead a variety of crash courses aimed at little ones. For something a little slower paced, check out the beloved Sunday Market, where over 80 artisans sell their wares each week from 10am to 4pm. Arts Centre Melbourne, 100 St Kilda Road, Melbourne. artscentremelbourne.com.au

IMMIGRATION MUSEUM Instead of huddling indoors as the weather turns cooler, head to the courtyard at Melbourne’s Immigration Museum to experience the autumn bounty. Every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the holidays, the Immigration Museum is offering kids a chance to use harvested produce to create artworks to take home, make mini scarecrows


MELBOURNE MUSEUM From live exhibits to animation workshops, there’s no shortage of handson activities happening at Melbourne Museum these school holidays. And, like sneaking vegetables into a meal, all of the fun comes with a side of education. At Gut Feeling, kids can learn the science behind digestion in a delightful display of physical theatre; in Meet the Museum Expert, they’ll get to try their hands at a range of weird and wonderful museum jobs; and workshops will teach kids how to direct their very own TV commercial! 11 Nicholson Street, Carlton. museumsvictoria.com.au/melbournemuseum

LEGOLAND® DISCOVERY CENTRE If your little ones can’t stop talking about Emmet, Wyldstyle and MetalBeard after “The LEGOTM Movie 2: The Second Part”, take them to the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre where movie mania continues all school holidays. A range of interactive and intergalactic activities allow children to enter their very own LEGO-verse, including the opportunity to make stop motion videos using LEGO, create LEGO Systar Systems, embark on scavenger hunts, and even meet the characters—all included in admission price. Chadstone Shopping Centre, Level 2, 1341 Dandenong Road, Chadstone. melbourne.legolanddiscoverycentre.com.au

Year-round, the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria is a safe bet for a day of relaxation and exploration. These school holidays are no exception, with a range of activities planned for kids and adults alike. For instance, in Rhyme Time (3 April), storytellers from the State Library of Victoria fill the gardens with imaginative tales, while Nature Play (17 April) comprises a range of naturebased sensory experiences (for instance, learning how to build a shelter). If you’d prefer to march to the beat of your own drum, join in one of the guided boat cruises or simply pull up a picnic blanket under your favourite tree. Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra. rbg.vic.gov.au

SCIENCEWORKS From tiny builders to big engines, these school holidays at Scienceworks are dedicated to the wonders of engineering. A full room of the museum will be transformed into an open-ended engineering play space, where kids can meet full-grown experts, find out how big engines work by seeing them in action, and even spend the day as an engineer, tinkering with contraptions and constructions of their very own. 2 Booker Street, Spotswood. museumsvictoria.com.au/scienceworks

WHERE IN MELBOURNE

 April is made for exploring Melbourne's hip vinyl record shops. While LPs may be bulky, they are so raw and immersive, they make you believe the artist is in the next room. So why not hear the latest offerings, be it funk, folk, bluegrass, rock or techno at your nearest record shop? For more great record stores in Melbourne visit wheretraveler.com

WHE RE I A P R I L 2019

Rocksteady Records This impressive store is run by the record guru, Pat Monaghan, who's been in the music industry for more than 30 years. He's watched vinyl boom and bust … then boom again in the 21st century. The store's niche is its selection of reggae and Caribbean music, complemented by a broad range of soul, rock, jazz, hip-hop and indie records, often from local acts. Rocksteady Records, Level 1, Mitchell House, 358 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. 1800 760 070. rocksteadyrecords.com.au

The Basement Discs Originally opened in 1994, the mini-music emporium stocks vinyl from most genres, with the latest releases always on hand. Music aficianados can also check out the curated selection of second-hand CDs, DVDs and books. Last year, Basement Discs diversified, selling a superb range of vintage clothing and jewellery. So now you can leave the store with the right sound and the right look. The Basement Discs, 24 Block Place, Melbourne. 9654 1110. basementdiscs.com.au

Heartland Records One of Melbourne’s largest collections of vinyl, Heartland Records certainly experimented in its early days. The store originally specialised in nothing but metal and classic rock. While it still has a certain metal madness, Heartland Records now offers a diverse range, including classic vinyl that shoppers probably threw out decades ago. Heartland Records, 420/422 Victoria Street, North Melbournee. 9329 9636. heartlandrecords.com.au

THE BASEMENT DISCS.
