It looks like winter might finally be over - but that doesn't mean your life is over!
Where should you go to warm up? We’ve tracked down the best of the best, with activities that will keep you warm all weekend long.
Peninsula Hot Springs
The best time to visit the Peninsula Hot Springs is on a freezing cold day. You can’t feel cold when you’re soaking in that thermal water! Make sure you bring a robe or rent one when you’re there to keep yourself warm between the different pools.
Melbourne Zoo’s Butterfly House is heated to 28 degrees year round, which is going to feel frankly tropical after you step inside! Then put your coat on and go explore everything else the zoo has to offer.
A Heated Indoor Pool
Swim some laps at your local indoor heated pool! If you’re really brave, some of Melbourne’s outdoor pools are also heated.
Eat A Spicy Meal
Chilli lovers, this one’s for you. Try warming yourself up from the inside with a hot and spicy meal. Hot wings, firey ramen, a killer curry or spicy Sichuan delicacies are just some of the options available in our food loving city.
Sit By A Fireplace
Melbourne’s pubs and restaurants are full of cosy fireplaces! Venues like The Grace Darling, The Local Taphouse and The Quiet Man are just a few of the many local pubs that feature fires that will warm you up fast.
Go To A Movie
Seriously, what is better than shutting yourself away inside a cinema for a few hours and watching a movie? Check out the latest blockbuster flicks or head to one of Melbourne’s beautiful arthouse cinemas for something different.
Botanic Gardens Tropical Glasshouse
Feel like becoming one with nature? The Tropical Glasshouse at the Royal Botanic Gardens is filled with tropical plants from across the globe. Winter is the optimum time for visiting!
Visit A Museum
Melbourne is full of museums, and the cold weather definitely makes being inside looking at all their amazing exhibitions an appealing prospect! Jurassic World The Exhibition is worth exploring at Melbourne Museum, while the NGV has plenty to see.
We live in a shopper’s paradise – and best of all most of it is indoors. Use this as an excuse to hang out at your local shopping centre, or head into the CBD where you can browse through Melbourne Central, Emporium, Myer and David Jones without going outside.
Just Stay Home
Because seriously, it’s cold out there. Turn the heater on, get under a blanket and switch on the TV. And don’t move until Monday morning.
