Melbourne’s Cultural Showcase

Melbourne’s Cultural Showcase
By admin

Tourism Victoria launched the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces program last Tuesday with dinner at Sydney’s Etch Restaurant. 

Tourism Victoria’s Don Richter told the audience that the state was attracting more interstate visitors than ever due to the depth and diversity of Melbourne’s event calendar. “We market the city through creativity,” Richter said.

Guests were greeted at the event by a life size cut out of Napoleon Bonaparte, who is also the headline act at the National Gallery of Victoria from June. Guests were also treated to a preview of the hit play Warhorse that will open on New Year’s Eve for a ten week season at the Arts Centre in Melbourne.

Melbourne Museum will host The Wonders of Ancient Mesopotamia until October 7, featuring over 170 artefacts from The British Museum’s world-famous Middle East collection. The Game Masters video game collection will also be on show from June 28 to October 28.
